When using VPN, everything except Outlook works and can even ping exchange server?
Posted on 2012-08-13
I cannot figure this out for the life of me, but we have a user where I work who uses Cisco AnyConnect vpn client to connect to our business servers. We are running exchange 2003 and office 2010. We edited the hosts file to make the ip to our exchange server point directly to it and the funny thing is you can ping the exchange server no problem. All of our network drives show up, but Outlook never connects. We connect to vpn no problem and the server drives come up, but when we click on Outlook, it says "trying to connect" then stays like that for a few moments then goes right to "disconnected". I cannot get it to connect and I have no clue what to do. I've restarted a bunch of times, disabled all of the internet adapters except for the verizon air card and vpn connection and still does not work. I've cleared the dns cache a bunch of times. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. I've been going crazy over this for a while.
