Exchange 2013 autodiscover returns internal hostname

Have just set up a new Exchange 2013 server and a DC in order to test and demo the product.  The only problem is that autodiscover returns the internal hostname rather than the external one.  TestExchangeConnectivity fails the Outlook Anywhere test with the following:

Autodiscover error
Of course, this should be returning the external URL.  All URLs are set in the Exchange admin  center to be the same for internal and external (remote.domain.com) with the required internal DNS entry on the DC/DNS server.  I have also set the internal URL using the command:

Set-ClientAccessServer -Identity DEMOEX -AutoDiscoverServiceInternalUri: https://remote.domain.com/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml

...to no effect.

Outlook clients can be set up manually and work fine, but later revert to the setting imposed by autodiscover.

How can I amend the autodiscover settings so it returns the external URL?

Thanks in advance!

Found the solution, here it is for anyone else who needs it.  From the Exchange Shell:

Get-OutlookAnywhere

Open in new window

... gives you the details.  Comparing settings to a working Exchange 2013 box I came up with this command:

Set-OutlookAnywhere 'DEMOEX\Rpc (Default Web Site)' -ExternalHostname remote.domain.com -InternalHostname remote.domain.com -ExternalClientsRequireSsl $true -InternalClientsRequireSsl $true -ExternalClientAuthenticationMethod Negotiate -InternalClientAuthenticationMethod Negotiate

Open in new window

Then you have to restart IIS.  Sorted!

Check settings with:

Get-OutlookAnywhere
