Outlook Anywhere Connectivity Test Returning local server name...

Thank you for reading,

I've been at this most the day and I have narrowed my problem down, I believe, to how my autodiscovery is returning info.  Her e is the output from my Exchange Connectivity test:

      Testing the Name Service Provider Interface (NSPI) on the Exchange Mailbox server.
       An error occurred while testing the NSPI RPC endpoint.
      Test Steps
      Attempting to ping RPC endpoint 6004 (NSPI Proxy Interface) on server Exchange2010.mydomin.LOCAL.
       The attempt to ping the endpoint failed.

I'm not sure if this an error with my cert or if I have not fully configured my external names for autodiscovery...

Symptoms: When I try to connect using Outlook 2007 I get:

error: outlook keeps prompting for auth (I set both the IIS, Outlook Anywhere, and Outlook 2007 to  use NTLM).

error: Exchange is not available.

I've run down the auth and I think I have that straight - I just don't fully understand how the local server name is coming back via autodiscover....

Thank you so much for your time!
