  • RPC-HTTP Issues

    Scenario:

    Single Exchange Server running on SBS 2003 also running other Websites, no Certificate

    Problem:
    RPC-HTTP doesn't connect on HTTP (other websites most prob) or HTTPS

    The other Websites are only running on http and not https I've gone through the RPC-HTTP settings a million times and everything is as it should be according to numerious Internet pages but Outlook can not connect.

    The Default website is setup to listen on http and https and Outlook is configured to connect and authenticate using basic authentication on ssl but nada still nothing.

    From what I understand the other websites should not have any impact because none of them are listening on port 443 and Outlook is setup to only connect via port 443 which infact should point to the default Webpage which is configured for RPC-HTTP and should pass the rest to the back-end Exchange server??

    Any advise for a RPC-HTTP rookie?

    PS we are running a Linux Firewall and all HTTP and HTTPS ports are NAT to the exchange box which also runs the multiple Websites.

    Since this is an SBS box, how did you setup RPC over HTTPS, manually or did you use the Wizards?
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.

    2 2 1 1 2

        You shouldn't do that with SBS. Whether you are a wizard fan or not, that is how SBS has been designed to work.

        SBS should be treated as an appliance. The wizards should be used exclusively for all functionality. The quickest way to screw up an SBS Server is to start doing things the manual way.
        If there isn't a wizard then you haven't looked hard enough. There are a few things that have to be done manually, but these are well known.

            There is no specific wizard for RPC over HTTPS. It is configured as part of the Connect to the Internet and Email wizard. During that wizard you have the option to enable or disable functionality connected to email, which RPC over HTTPS is one - I think it is called Outlook over the Internet in SBS.

            There are then instructions in RWW on how to configure the client.
