Outlook 2010 client cannot conect to exchange2010 server throught IPSEC VPN.

Server : Windows Server 2008R2 / Exchange 2010 64 bits
Client  : Windows 7 64b / Outlook 2010 64b
VPN Server : IPSEC VPN
VPN Client : The Grenbow IPSEC Client 5.0

I can conect to the server. I can ping the server on IP and NAME.
I can ad a new exchange account to Outlook (in VPN mode).
I have teste with the admin account.
I can't conect to the user mailbox.
Connect throught HTTP is out. (conection settings)
I can do pretty much everything throught the VPN behalve the Outlook conection.
HELP!

are you planning for the "Outlook rpc-https" or just "Outlook MAPI" connections?

From your description,
- Administrator Outlook profile is working fine
- Normal Outlook users profile is not working?
(what is the error message we are receiving?)
What is the details (screen-shot) @ the OUtlook connection-status window (Outlook @ system-tray; control-key and right=click)

The user is working with is laptop onsite as a domain systeem/user and conect to exchange through the LAN.
On the road of at home is conecting to the company network through IPSEC VPN.
The VPN server is a ZyWall (Hardware)  en the VPN client "TheGrenbowVPN v5.0(soft).
Everything is working perfekt behalve Outlook wich cannot conect to the server.
To test the conection I have tryied to add an Outlook mailbox to the systeem in VPN mode.
It was working when I have used the IP adres of the server in state of the NAME.
When I try to change the user account and conect to the server i get a big NO.
"Cannot establish a conection with the Exchange server..."
The idea is that after establishing a VPN connection the user can open outlook and use it pretty much as he does at his desk. I am not sure that rpc-https can be used through VPN so I ques that MAPI is used. Sure we can use Webmail but the customer demands the full Outlook functionality.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

IMO, if the end-customer is expecting an full Outlook usage from the remote location...we can just concentrate @ the configuration\testing of the "Outlook Anywhere"

>> The URL to configure the same @ E2010

The advantage of configuring\using the "Outlook Anywhere" is
- we just need the port 443 enabled\opened at firewall and no need to worry about the other ports configurations @ the fireall or any other devices

> On contrast if we have the VPN..then we should be having a overhead of configuring the MAPI access across the devices.
