I’ve posted this issue before but now I have more information.
i have two questions:
I have one exch 2003(without sp1) server which is also the dc (2003 server+sp1).
client: xp+sp1 outlook 2003+ sp1
I didn’t install sp1 for exchange because last time I installed the server didn’t came up from restart. Furthermore the rpc over http doesn’t require sp1 for exch. (but I will try to install it again next time when I will have a rollback option).
I followed the articles:
Configure SSL on OWA
Configure RPC over HTTP/S on a Single Server
Configure SSL on Your Website with IIS
Configure Outlook 2003 to use RPC over HTTP/S
Testing RPC over HTTP/S Connection
I’ve already implemented ssl with owa ( i used 3rd party ca(startcom)
but which is unknown to the clients, until i had it myself, i didn’t
use my own ca because of security matters)
Configured Exchange to use RPC over HTTP/S.
Configured the RPC virtual directory in Internet Information Services.
Configured the RPC proxy server to use specific ports.
(did all the changes necessary to exch without sp1)
Configured the client computers to use RPC over HTTP/S
I’m trying to access from the lan
i see it still uses the tcp/ip
i tried to do it by force (only caused troubles, the esm didn’t run)
when trying to connect through wan i get the logon box(where i need to
enter the user/password)
and i get a message that the exchange server is unavailable(while i
know it is up)
kill me i dono i followed all the steps carefully.
2. one more problem is when i’m trying to connect simply by outlook
from the wan(without using ssl and all that stuff) to my exch server
i’m entering my exch server(external fqdn) on the profile
configuration and it doesn’t work , only ip but when i use owa from
wan there is no problem in resolving names(dns seems to work fine)
furthermore, when i complete the profile wizard i’m trying to connect
and i get the user/password box(because im entering from a computer
which is not part of the domain) and everytime i insert the
cardentials, the box jump back like if there is a problem with the
I’m sure my user / password is correct
when i enter the server to iis admin->default web site ->properties ,
i view the cert and see yellow exclamation mark on the certificate. it
said “windows does not have enough information to verify this
certificate” , and when i enter with the client to owa using ssl ,
although i use the startcom cool link in order to install the cert to
the client , i continue to get the yellow green message (as you call
it) and the error is “The name on the security certificate Is invalid
or does not match the name of the site” . and thats after i’ve
imported the cert to the trusted root both on the server and the
client. further more i used mail.domain.com in the common name so
whats the problem.??? how can i fix this issue? do i need to use my
