Outlook Anywhere template question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Out of curiosity I have two questions about the default settings put in place when publishing Outlook anywhere:

    1.   On the path on the web servers tab, why is the default /rpc/rpcproxy.dll?...  ?    Isn't "/rpc" enough and isn;t this field really just meant to go path deep, not all the way to file and parameter level?   (the rule set already filters at the deeper level)

    2.  Why does it add a manual rereoute for /rpc/rpcproxy.dll... when I add OA?   The OA application uses its own public hostname so all requests come in without HAT signatures and the public hostname itself along with the path should be sufficient to figure out what RWS the request is meant for.   Isn't this manual reroute feature only for web apps that are published using the templates that hides a web server behind the portals public hostname and uses HAT?

    Thanks, Mark

  • Hi Mark,


    1. I belive the reason they are using the specific "url level" is to prevent conflict with RemoteApp/RDS applications that also use the RPC proxy.

    2. Actually, with exchange publishing, you can use the portal hostname and you are not forced to have different public hostname. In this scenario, this rule can help as the portal hostname is HAT application ....


    Hope this answer your quesions, and nice hearing from you!
