How to disable/turn off outlook anwhere on exchange 2013

Hi Guys,
i want to disable outlook anywhere on exchange 2013 - as I only want outlook to connect to machines that are on the domain via VPN and also i can just give OWA if anyone wants to access emails over the Web with no domain pcs...

can you please tell me what to do?

You cannot disable Outlook Anywhere as it is the only connection method for Exchange 2013, whether internal or external.

Therefore the only option without additional services would be to use a host name that doesn't resolve externally for Outlook Anywhere. It would still need to be a public name so that you can get an SSL certificate from a trusted provider. You would probably need to use a split name space.

host.example.com (OWA, ActiveSync, MX records)
Autodiscover.example.com
outlookanywhere.example.com (Outlook Anywhere).

You will need to ensure that it does not resolve, as a user could enter host.example.com in to Outlook and get connected. It would be corrected by Autodiscover, but that can be defeated.

The other option would be something to control access - the discontinued TMG product for example, where you simply do not publish the virtual directories.
