Continuing the blogcast series on infrastructure essentials.
This fourth part of configuring RPC over HTTP for Outlook 2003 moves us on to ensuring that RPC/HTTP works internally from our Outlook 2003 client to our Exchange 2003 Server. First though, we correct a typo in the registry settings from the previous blogcast part (sorry!). One thing that is critical is to correctly configure our Outlook Profile for RPC/HTTP connectivity. We walk through the settings and change them, take a look at the “/rpcdiag” switch when starting outlook and end up with Outlook talking to our Exchange server through HTTPS internally.
Next week, we’ll start tackling the ISA Server configuration to get RPC/HTTPS available from the Internet.
