Why RPC over HTTP using Outlook 2007 not working?

In our branch office, I already used vpn to connect to our Exchange 2010 in the head quarter and completed the profile set up. And with VPN, it is working. But as soon as the VPN is off, the connection to Exchange is off. What could be wrong?

could be a number of things -- you don't mention what config you have done.  there are numerous posts on this in EE already.

you need a valid SSL cert in play for your OWA and then set the email account on the system to cache mode (in 2 locations) as well as setting you're Exchange connection tab options -- Exchange Proxy Settings.  There you need to add your OWA server name, use the MSSTD: precursor for your OWA server name and set your authentication and test.
