Just made change on Exchange. Now can't connect to Management Console and Power Shell!

hi guys,

I was trying to resolve a certificate issue on our Exchange server 2010.

I followed the article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/979694

However, by running this command: netsh winhttp set proxy proxy-server="http=myproxy" bypass-list="*.host_name.com"

I now can't connect to the Management Console!

Can you help me please? How can I revert to work?

Did you restart the Exchange Transport Service after making the change? That is an important step as noted at the end of this procedure.

Can you post the error which you are getting while trying to start Management Console and Power Shell.

Thanks for responding.

The issue is that I've set it with a proxy address when it doesn't need one.

How can I reset it so that it has direct access? Do you know the command using the winhttp commands?

This is the error.

It's because our DNS server has been set as it's proxy.

I need to be set with no proxy at all, i.e. reset back to what it was with direct access.

You should be able to remove it with the following command.

netsh winhttp reset proxy
