Hi All

I have a broken RPC/HTTP.  The server is Exchange 2003 SP2 running on Server 2003 R2.  The office is not a user of remote Outlook clients but RPC/HTTP is going to play a role in migration to O365.  I have used the Microsoft Remote Connectivity Analyzer and get stuck on the following:

Testing HTTP Authentication Methods for URL https://webmail.MYDOMAIN.com/rpc/rpcproxy.dll?emailserver:6002.
       The HTTP authentication test failed.
       
      Additional Details
       
Exception details:
Message: The underlying connection was closed: A connection that was expected to be kept alive was closed by the server.
Type: System.Net.WebException
Stack trace:
at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse()
at Microsoft.Exchange.Tools.ExRca.Extensions.RcaHttpRequest.GetResponse()
Exception details:

Open up IIS manager and check your RPC virtual directory security settings.

Make sure you have Basic and Integrated Windows Auth enabled, apply and run IISRESET, then re-test on the test site.
