Cisco router grabbing cert request

Posted on 2013-01-29
Last Modified: 2013-01-30
I'm trying to setup outlook anywhere.  I have done it successfully in 2 other places but here the cisco box seems to be grabbing the certificate request.  I have a legit certificate on the 2010 exchange box but from this test it appears to be grabbing it from the cisco firewall/router.  The mac address listed is from the internal lan interface of the router.  I have checked the settings against my similar router and they both seem to match up.  Any ideas?

      Attempting to resolve the host name in DNS.
       The host name resolved successfully.
      Additional Details
      Testing TCP port 443 on host mail.xxxx to ensure it's listening and open.
       The port was opened successfully.
      Testing the SSL certificate to make sure it's valid.
       The SSL certificate failed one or more certificate validation checks.
      Test Steps
      ExRCA is attempting to obtain the SSL certificate from remote server mail.xxxx on port 443.
       ExRCA successfully obtained the remote SSL certificate.
      Additional Details
       Remote Certificate Subject: SN=California, L=Irvine, C=US, O="Cisco-Linksys, LLC", OU=RV042, CN=68:ef:bd:b8:0f:78, Issuer: SN=California, L=Irvine, C=US, O="Cisco-Linksys, LLC", OU=RV042, CN=68:ef:bd:b8:0f:78.
      Validating the certificate name.
       Certificate name validation failed.
        Tell me more about this issue and how to resolve it
      Additional Details
       Host name mail.xxxx doesn't match any name found on the server certificate SN=California, L=Irvine, C=US, O="Cisco-Linksys, LLC", OU=RV042, CN=68:ef:bd:b8:0f:78.

I would guess that there is no port forward from port 443 on the Linksys router to the CAS server.

Yes there is a forward and I have also tried setting the mail server as a DMZ box and removing all the other forwards.

Checking through the maual for the RV042, there is an https option in the general firewall configuration enabled by default if Remote Mangement is enabled. This will certainly intercept any TCP 443 connections to the WAN address. Try disabling the https feature.
Is your NGFW recommended by NSS Labs?

Ours is! NSS Labs Next Generation Firewall Test gives the WatchGuard Firebox M4600 a "Recommended" rating! Curious where your NGFW landed on the  Security Value Map? See the map and download the full report today!

Remote management is not enabled but turning off https management access fixed the certificate issue at least.  Now it is barking about http in general.  
Testing HTTP Authentication Methods for URL https://mail.xxxx/rpc/rpcproxy.dll?xxxx:6002.
       The HTTP authentication test failed.
      Additional Details
       A Web exception occurred because an HTTP 404 - NotFound response was received from IIS7.

that would be on port 6002 which shouldn't be required

The new error indicates a problem with RPC. Microsoft is a good starting point:
