  • RPC over HTTP I just dont get it...

    Enviorment:
    Windows 2008 Server - Exchange 2007
    Windows 2008 Server Front-End (Virtual) - Exchange 2007

    I have installed the RPC feature in add/remove programs, but everyting I read keeps saying I need certifacations, and an ISA server. I want simple i'm not concerned about secureity right now i'm just trying to get a test server up and running and i'm dissapointed I cant get this to work. Is there a video or a write up for this? Or can somone point me in the right direction or could provide some insistance.

    You don't need ISA to publish as Exchange is secure enough (generally). You will need a public certificate though, they are quite cheap. Are you running SP1 with rollup?

    Have you seen this post?

      I did all that stuff, and I get this error...

      "There is a problem with the proxy server's security certificate. The security certificate is not from a trusted certifying authority.

      Oulook is unable to connnect to the proxy server mydomain.com.
      (Error Code1."

        You didn't confirm if your certificate is a public one or not.
        Is it?
        Can you view it correctly?

            You have to import certificate that you have on ISS (on exchange) to every machine which will be using Outlook anywhere...

            This applies if you created self-signed certificate...

              As gregaSLO says, and as I have asked. Where did you get the certificate from?
              Home grown certs are not trusted by anyone unfortunately.

                Self-signed certs (home grown) are actually trusted in a domain environment if the cert authority within the AD is the one who gave out the cert.

                  Do you have a link for that (I can't find one but am happy to believe you).

                  Even so though, this thread clearly shows the cert isn't trusted and I was generally meaning the certificate isn't a good one to use because of the issues below (as well as others).

                  DubOhio - can you make sure that certificate is trusted on all machines please?
                  cheers

                    This is the best I can do for literature.
                    "Active Directory is considered a trusted storage mechanism. When direct trust is used, it doesn't matter if the certificate is self-signed or signed by a certification authority."
