I am trying to get an external Outlook configured. I have verified, as best I know that the RPC on the SBS 2008 server is working properly. It shows the RPC Cert in IIS (v6) and when I go to any external computer and type in https://mxrecord.FQDN.com/rpc
it brings up the prompt and when I input the user's ID & password, after three attempts, gives me the proverbial HTTP 401.1 screen.
We are using a self-issued certificate. I'm not really fluent with certificates and am wondering how to get, and if I can get, the self-issued certificate to work properly to get RPC over HTTP to work properly.
All the directions I've read say to put exactly what the certificate says, i.e. NETBIOSnameofserver.domain
.local in the 'More Settings' - 'Connection' tab etc., Can it work with a self-issued certificate or am I better of getting a 3rd party certificate from GoDaddy?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
