  • Configuring rpc-http/s

    Hello.
    I'm having some problems getting rcp-http/s to work in my lab. I've followed all the steps here but no luck yet.
    http://www.petri.com/configure_rpc_o...gle_server.htm
    My clients will connect over the lan but when i do the tcp filtering on the lan connection of the server to only allow 80 and 443 tcp ports it doesn't connect at all.
    I think it's to do with my cert, which is issued by a local CA
    when i try to connect via my client i get a login promot, which ever details i try i'm unsuccessful.

    My set up is a single exchange server that's does the roles of DNS, AD, certserver and exchange all on the 192.168.40.0 range.
    My DC, is called dc01.skynet.local
    my client is xp-2

    Any advice would be appriciated.

    If you use a "not Microsoft supported" home grown cert then you need to ensure you have the root certificate installed as well. If you browse to Outlook Web Access can you view the site without a certificate prompt?

    When you logon to rpc/https have you tried domain\username for the username as well (try it a couple of times).

        You shouldn't get a prompt if you have installed the root certificate. Can you download it from the CA and install it on your test machine. When you browse to the OWA site you should just get the logon box and a locked padlock showing the site is secure. Until that works the rpc/https won't.

          Lets be more specific.
          If you get a certificate prompt then RPC Over HTTPS will never work. Outlook cannot cope with the certificate prompt.
          I would suggest that you get a commercial certificate. RapidSSL do 30 day trial certificates. Much easier than spending hours trying to get a self generated certificate to work.
