Default Re: Tethering on Rogers, Outlook RPC Not Working

1st of all, Outlook 2010 doesn't require a VPN connection to work, if you're using a FQDN to resolve the Exchange server. I'm on Koodo and I can do this via Hospot with Outlook 2010. I have not tried with tethering, so it is possible that it may not work, but I'm guessing Outlook can't resolve the server, because of a domain or FQDN issue.

In Outlook, when you setup the server connection, do you use the server name or the IP address? Are you on a VPN with your PC, or not? Need to know more to troubleshoot.

You can also go to the Microsoft site here to fully test your Exchange server...

Also, you don't need to run Outlook 2010 via Http or RPC, it will run without any of that even if you're not on a VPN. That wasn't the case with prior versions, but it is with 2010.
