  • Cannot Login Through HTTP over RDP

    I have gone over the instructions for HTTP over RDP several times, and it seems to be configured properly, but when I try to connect externally I get the login prompt, but it won't accept the password, which I'm positive is correct. It is a single server setup. What could be going wrong here? Is it a DNS problem, or a problem with IAS configuration or is there something that needs to be setup on the user account? I can access secure OWA without a certificate problem. I used a GoDaddy cert. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    In Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager expand Web Sites, expand Default Web Site, right-click Rpc, and then click Properties.
    Click the Directory Security tab, and then click Edit under Secure communications.
    Make sure that "Ignore client certificates" is selected.

      I checked that, and it was selected. Any other ideas?

        Try the user name including the internal domain. (domain\user)

          This is unbelievable... It worked! After trying every combination over the past week, that tip worked. Many thanks. You just saved me!

          Thanks again.
