Hi,

We have a user that commutes with his laptop and i am going to put him on one our SBS servers (SBS 2008)

As he commutes can i setup Outlook anywhere on his laptop so he can use it (is there anything i need to setup server side)

OWA is already setup on said server

if you are using SBS then 90-100% should be setup ready if you have gone through the wizards.  if your OWA works OK is it using remote.companyname.com then you can also connect to remote.companyname.com/remote which will have links down the right hand side, one of which will be instructions for how to set up outlook over http rpc.

if you go to owa and there isn't any cert errors it should work fine and there shouldn't be anything you need to do on the server.

On the workstation go to Tools, Account Settings, Email, Change, More Settings, Connection, Outlook Anywhere check "connect to Microsoft Exchange using HTTP".

Click on "Microsoft Exchange Proxy Settings"  under connection settings type
- remote.domain.com
- check Connect using SSL only
-check "only connect to proxy servers that have this principle name in the certificate:"
- type msstd:remote.domain.com

select OK.

1. to get the thumbprint type: Get-ExchangeCertificate -domain "servername" | fl
2. thumbprint in step 1 enter in step 3.
3. type: Get-ExchangeCertificate -thumbprint "2FB28F5075EFE9B30A8F8458DED0A137629F62D7" | New-ExchangeCertificate

You are using the sample thumbprint WORKS2011 provided, read his instructions again
In Step 1 that command provides you with the line you need to enter in Step 3 - his line is just an example of what it will look like...

So the 2FB28F...he provided was just an example

ok i have tried  Get-ExchangeCertificate -domain "servername" | fl and it doesnt come back with anything??
Commented:
You need to install the certificate from your SBS Server on the remote computer.

From a computer on the network browse to your server and go to \\YOURSERVER\Public\Downloads\Certificate Distribution Package

Copy the three files from that directory to a flash drive and launch InstallCertificate.exe on the remote workstation. Install the certificate to the computer and it will now work ok.
