Hi All

           I have an exchange 2013, having 3rd party SSL Certificate applied to the server and Outlook Anywhere enabled, Just wonder in order to connect via outlook anywhere in remote network, do i need to connect the outlook client one time first in the same internal network as the exchange 2013 server, as i have tried to setup outlook anywhere in outlook client in remote site, and that outlook client had never connected with the exchange server in the past,

I have a similar setup, on a remote network or a pc not on the domain, I create the user outlook profile, type in the exchange server name / username which is in AD, then go to more settings, connection - exchange proxy settings and type the public facing address eg:
Should be straight forward - your A records in the DNS should be facing to the real IP of your server

Once you enabled outlook anywhere and configured Autodiscovery, it should just required to key email address and password. You don't need to do it in local. Must work outside office.
Make sure your enabled Outlook anywhere correctly and Autodiscovery work .
Could you test Outlook anywhere from here ?
Above link is safe to test. From there, it'll tell you what error you have.
