exchange 2010 and outlook 2010 outlook anywhere will not accept user credentials

I have a problem connecting outlook 2010 to exchange 2010 via outlook anywhere, on a computer not connected to the domain (running windows 7 home premium).

I have a certificate generated by local CA, which I know is not ideal.

BUT, the confusing part is, I have 1 machine working with this setup, but I cannot get any other machine to work - I am comparing every setting and I cannot see why one machine is working and not the other - everything SEEMS identical.

Can someone help?

Are the network settings the same on the machine that works and those that aren't, may be a name resolution issue so just wondering on the DNS servers information.

Hi Davids,

Run the testexchangeconnectivity tests as suggested by takecoffee and this may give some hints.

Are the non-domain members located internally (on the LAN) or remotely?

It sounds like DNS might be the problem.

I havent run the connectivity test yet, I will run that in the morning.

Both computers are in our office (Not the clients network), both connected to the same lan, both win 7 home premium, both outlook 2010.
All settings seem identical, the only thing I can think that I may have done diffrently is the original procedure for installing certificates on the client machines.

I guess the correct way will be to get a proper certificate, but its really bugging me why this wont work.

I will try the connectivity test in the morning and report back.

If you are not sure about how you installed the certificate, open up cert manager and delete the certificate wherever you can see it, then re-install it to the correct location.

Test Connectivity is going to be a waste of time because you are using a self signed certificate. Those aren't supported for use with Outlook Anywhere. If you really cannot get the $60 or less for a trusted certificate from GoDaddy, then if your DNS provider supports SRV records get a free certificate from StartSSL.

james, the non domain members are located outside of the lan.

I have tried going in and removing all certificates related to the server, then re-adding.

the exchange connectivity test works, but only if I tick the box that says, ignore trust for SSL.

Sembee, we can purchase a certificate, but I really want to get to the bottom of it, mainly because I have one computer working, so it must be possible.

sorted now guys - I started from scratch, then just installed the CA certificate on the client under trusted root certification authorities.

then re-configured outlook anywhere and made sure to change authentication to basic (because they are non domain members).

this seemed to solve it.

I think I had just tried so many things I got confused with what I had and hadn't done.

thanks for the help.
