Hi guys,

I have this weird problem and was hoping that someone here can help me.

I am trying to set up Outlook Anywhere on a few smartphones. I am also testing with Outlook 2003.

I have ports 80 and 443 pointing to the exchange server and OWA is working fine over HTTPS. "RCP over HTTP proxy" component is installed on the server. Exchange is 2003 (no SP1). I have set up in IIS the default website to allow anonymous access and use basic authentication also. the same goes for Exchange, Rpc and RpcWithCert websites. In Outlook I've set up the proxy server with basic authentication.

One possible problem can be that the CN in the certificate does not match the FQDN of the server.

Any ideas?

Thanks

EDIT: Also the domain name of the server is of type domain.local

OK, I've narrowed the problem.
It works when the client is in the office or has VPN connected, but it would not work otherwise.
It should be either firewall or DNS. As far as I know Outlook Anywhere only uses port 443, it is not the firewall (:443 points to the server and OWA works over HTTPS).
This leaves the DNS. As I said the server's domain name is of type server.domain.local
I set up server.domain.local to point to the public IP of the server in hosts file of the client, but it did not work.

I am clueless. Any ideas?

Thanks
