my domain controller and exchange servers are hosted in windows sbs server 2008. it is located in some other location. from branch office i am able to ping the SBS server. but client machines and outlook are not connecting to DC and exchange server.
if i am connected vpn i am able to access the dc and exchange server. please help me to fix the issue
The addresses are fine – Exchange normally uses a different email domain to the AD domain
I’m not familiar with WatchGuard – presumably you have one at each end (branch and main office), but what provides name resolution (and IP addresses) in the branch office?
I am also assuming the branch office computers are domain members, but can you confirm it?
(In fact, if you can do a little diagram showing some IP ranges etc that would help a lot
