    Re: RPC over HTTPS

    SSL prompts are either caused by authentication mismatch or SSL prompt issue.

    Ensure that you have the same authentication type set in Outlook and on the virtual directory.
    So either Basic/Basic or Integrated/NTLM.

    You should also confirm that the name you are entering in to Outlook for the RPC over HTTPS server matches the name on your SSL certificate.

        I expect you can, but I don't waste my time on even trying.
        When the feature was first released I spent many hours trying to get it to work with a self generated certificate and failed. I purchased a certificate for US$30 and had it working in less than an hour. I can now get it to work with a commercial certificate in less than 30 minutes.
        As such I don't even bother trying with a self generated certificate, first advice to anyone is always - but a certificate.

        Depends how valuable your time is to you.

            The GoDaddy certificates are fine.
            I have used them many times and my home Exchange system is protected by them.

              Re: RPC over HTTPS

              Thanks all for you support
              specially thanks to Sembee Sir ....

              I just go to GODADDY website and going to purchase a ssl certificate , then i think , lets try once more time and I digg the net more and more .. and I found this solution working .. I m just copy and paste the sloution which work for me ..

              I've had best luck tweaking the instructions found here
              http://www.petri.com/configure_rpc_o...gle_server.htm
              http://www.amset.info/exchange/rpc-http-server.asp
              http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/outlookrpchttp.html
              download IIS resource kit, use selfSSL to create a server side cert, make sure CN is what you want to call
              the site from the outside, ie mail.company.net
              you have to convert this to a .cer file also
              you have to download the cer file to all clients and import it into XP
              when you are done with this you have to test with OWA
              CAN YOU OWA and not receive a securty prompt? if so then move on , if not find out why.
              enable RPC proxy in ESM
              RPC proxy reg tweak, make sure to name them by several names internal, internal FQDN and external
              FQDN.
              port foward 443
              on client hosts file tweaks:
              external IP address plainhostname
              external IP address plainhostname.internal(AD)domain.internal
              external IP address realinternethosname.company.net
              client logon prompts are always answered with DOMAIN\username
              Outlook profile:
              exchange servername = plainhostname.internal(AD)domain.internaltmaexch1. tma.internal**
              connection tab
              exchange over the internet check box on for connect with HTTP
              proxy settings:
              use this url realinternethosname.company.net
              tick mutually authenticate
              proxy principal name
              msstd:realinternethosname.company.net
              tick both boxes on fast on slow
              change to basic authentication.
              troubleshootingfrom
              outside can you do https://ipaddress_or_hostname/rpc without a security prompt.
              can you OWA...
              hold down control and right click on the outlook tray icon, a new option connection status is there, use it.
              things are going well for the proxy system and the RPC if you see two or more lines for directory service
              and a couple of mail tunnels. Proxy is up but not RPC if you see only directory service or no conections.



              And Thanks a lot guys for my help and i learned a lot on PETRI.CO , i was a new bie in exchnage few months before , now i m setting up exchange server for my Org ... Thanks a Lot Petri sir for setup a such a great website with great forum with great peoples like Sembee

                While you have used a self generated SSL certificate, it is not something I ever recommend for anything outside of a lab.
