My wife has Outlook 2007 set up in her office connecting her via RPC over HTTP to their Exchange server sitting somewhere in the HQ. It works. Now the weird bit. From home on a desktop PC IE8 won't even go to what she's got set up in her office Outlook as HTTP proxy. It gives DNS error. Wireshark shows me that the remote.blablabla was found and it's IP is this and that and then when handshaking the remote server sends [RES, ACK]. The previous packet queries my public DNS for the name of remoteServerLocalName.localdomain.local.lan for some reason probably getting it from the certificate I would guess. However, on the same computer Firefox connects to OWA giving the cut off version of it which is no good. Setting up Outlook doesn't work saying it cannot connect to the Exchange server. Now, when I do the same on a Windows7 laptop IE9 connects to OWA although not every time. When I set up Outlook on that computer it tells me "there was a problem with proxy server security certificate" and closes. How on earth does it work at her office?
No announcement yet.
