Problem Activating FOPE RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to activate a new Online Service Agreement for FOPE. I keep getting 'We were unable to validate your data. Please try again. I am using an Exchange 2003 SP2 server. I have 3 domains. DNS records are stored at dnspark.com.

    Which is my Public Inbound IP - dnspark.net or the one issued by my ISP?

    Which is my Public Outbound IP - In an old setup I used the one issued by my ISP...

    First try was:

    domain name    static IP issued by ISP for inbound      static IP issued by ISP for outbound.

    Second try was:

    domain name   dnspark.net A record IP                       static IP issued by ISP for outbound.

    Any help?

  • Nevermind I got it accepted anyway. I don't know if it will work yet.

  • I have had the same issue and I called in support. There is a secret switch that you can bypass this.


    When you get the error "we were unable to verify your data". Click the "continue activation" button 6 times. It will then bypass the check and take you to the next page for the activation. Thanks

  • I'm also having this issue trying to activate the agreement.

    On hold with Activation support looking into this issue.<o:p></o:p>

    If you call in to activations be sure to ask for the Online Services Activation team as the normal activation team doesn't even know what the Online version of Forefront is and will just insists that you need to install the software.<o:p></o:p>
