  • Connect to Exchange remotely

    Hello Folks!!

    I have an IBM server with SBS2003 and a firewall Cisco Pix 501.
    All i want to do is to permit an laptop computer connect to the exchange server when remotely connected trough VPN client.
    i configured the outlook (Outlook 2003), after i connected vpn, i gave the WAN address and the name of the user, then pressed the "Check Name" button and receive a positive answer (underline names and server). But now my problem start cause when i open outlook, i receive "the server doesn't answer; try again" message.

    What should i do.

    thank you all

    P.S: I don't want to use OWA.

    Are you connected trough VPN?
    Why using the WAN adress and not the LAN adress?

      Could just do Exchange over HTTPS and bypass the VPN altogether.

        Use RPC over HTTPS
        Use RWW
        Use OWA
        Use anything but VPN. But if you must use VPN, then DO use the local lan address, not WAN one plus I believe CISCO PIX needs "fixup smtp" command or such (don't remember exact syntax)

          Thank you all for your answers!

          1. first of all i must say that i meant LAN address and not the WAN.

          2. Unfortunately, because the client pay and decide, i have to use vpn.

          3. I figured what was wrong and it's very simple. I just add the LAN address in the c:\%system%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file and everything went into place, like a flip of a switch (as van morrison sing).


          Thank you all again folks.
