    do you have internet access at this time at home? what if you try to access it without the VPN?

    Can you access the email via OWA?

    yes have internet access at home - and at first I managed to configure exchange together with a VPN access.

    Now with or without VPN entourage does not get connected

    over OWA I can access emails yes via SAFARI.

    does it work at your office via wi-fi?  Is your workstation firewall on?  try turning it off.  Any proxies on your network?

    actually I can connect use OUTLOOK in PC via VPN with exchange
    so no problem abt the firewall.

    but the problem with MAC/Entourage.

    and it works with wi-fi at the office on Mac

    Strange.  You may want to check your settings.  Reset it up in Entourage.  Run all the entourage updates.
