    Connecting to Exchange 5.5 over a VPN

    Hi,

    I have a situation where I need to connect several remote computers to our Exchange Server over a VPN.

    I can get the remote users to browse the network, but I can't get them to connect to the Exchange Server.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    I'm getting desperate! <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    I am assuming of course that you simply want the remote users to see folders on the server and not use Outlook etc.... Therefore, the remote users have to log onto their own PC's using the windows user ID and password that you have set up for them on the exchange server, otherwise they'll log onto the server as "Anonomous" and most likely won't see a thing. Next, you can use Start...Run....IP address of the exchange server and their browser should come up with the folders in view.

    If you want them to use outlook on the exchange server then do the following in the browser:

    HTTP://Servers IP Address/exchange
    Window will come up for user id and password and domain. Just key the details in and their in!

    If u are still having problems then you probably don't have the user profiles set up properly. This is not a very user friendly environment with exchange server and can get downright confusing at times.

    Thanks for the response.

    I will be needing them to connect into Exchange in order to use Outlook, (ie synchronising their folders and sending/receiving messages) so I'll try the suggestion that you made.
