Server Configuration for Clients RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using outlook 2010 and exchange 2010.  We have a webfiltering software that shows websites being accessed.  I will randomly see on the web filtering log that people are accessing https://server.domain.com/server.domain.com443.  Is Outlook 2010 configured wrong, is the server configured wrong, any thoughts?  I would think that Oultook would be connecting direclty to the server.

    Thank you

  • Outlook uses Exchange Web Services for the offline address book, free-busy data, managing out of office and some other features.  That URL you posted indeed looks wrong, so you might want to see if any of your virtual directories' ExternalURL or InternalURL settings are configured wrong.  On a workstation running Outlook, hold the Ctrl key down, click on the Outlook icon in the system tray, select Test E-mail AutoConfiguration, enter your e-mail address and password, clear the Guessmart checkboxes and then click Test.  You'll see the URLs that Exchange is providing to Outlook.  Perhaps one of them is wrong.

  • That is good, I should be seeing that traffic.

     

    I did the test as you suggested, I think it is ok.

    Internal OWA URL:  https://"ServerName"."DomainName".com/owa

    Availability Service URL: https://"ServerName"."DomainName".com/EWS/asmx

    OOF URL: https://"ServerName"."DomainName".com/EWS/Exchange.asmx

    OAB URL: https://"ServerName"."DomainName".com/OAB/81600c58...

    On the log tab it shows: https://"ServerName"."DomainName".com/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml Succeeded.

    The ServerName is the internal computer name. Does this all look correct?

  • Agree.

    https://server.domain.com/server.domain.com443.  is not a regular format. generally, the Exchange web-based service URLs look like below:

    https://servername/service/pagename/
