Outlook anywhere working on windows 7 but not windows 8

Hi.  We have exchange 2010 running on a 2008 (64 bit) server.   I have configured outlook anywhere in exchange.

I have tested it successfully on 2 windows 7 machines running outlook 2010.  

It will NOT connect on 2 windows 8 machines running outlook 2010. It just reads "outlook must be online or connected etc...."

Does anyone know why this is?  Very frustrated.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

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

I didn't write any new policies.  should I check the default ones?  I believe that IPV6 is enabled on the server.

What would be the difference between office 2010 in a windows 7 env instead of a windows 8 env?

Hi. I figured it out.  In windows 7 the server name and the public name you put into exchange over https is the same like mail.contoso.com.   In windows 8 the server name is the fqdn of the actual box and then the public name goes into the https settings.
