In additin to the above;
9. Used 'rpcping' to ping FE01 (behind the ISA Server) from an external network. Succesful, get the response below;
RPCPinging proxy server owamail.mydomain.com with Echo Request Packet
Sending ping to server
Response from server received: 200
Pinging successfully completed in 109ms
10. However, the following command...
rpcping -t ncacn_http -s be01.mydomain.com -o RpcProxy=owamail.mydomain.com -P "firstname.lastname@example.org,mydomain,<password>" -I "email@example.com,mydomain,<password>" -H 1 -F 3 -a connect -u 10 -v 3 -e 6001
Results in an 'Exception 5 (0x00000005)' error!!!
I take all this to mean that the front-end server (FE01) is receiving the RPC/HTTP requests, but not forwarding them to the back-end server (BE01)?!
I've edited the 'hosts' file on the ISA Server to iinclude the IP Address of the FrontNet FE01 NIC.
Installed the issued (test) certificate on the client computer with Outlook 2003, [and tested that I can reach http://owamail.mydomain.com/rpc without a certificate pop-up] !
The client computer is Windows XP SP2, and Outlook SP2, as I've heard that this can cause issues sometimes!
All this and Outlook 2003 RPC/HTTPS still won't verify when I click 'Check Name'!!
Help, Am I missing something here, or is this an issue alot of you have a problem with?!

I simply (but obviously didn't) had to put the FQDN of the BackEnd Server (BE01) in the 'Exchange Server Address' setting on Outlook 2003. not the FrontEnd/Resolved FrontEnd address. I was under the impression that the RPC Proxy on FE01 would forward the
RPC/HTTPS request to BE01 regardless of putting the public address (which resolves to the FrontEnd server) in the 'Exchange Server Address' box on Outlook 2003.
Either I was up far too late, i've gone wrong somewhere in my address naming process, or I swear this wasn't mentioned anywhere in any documentation i could find!!
Would still appreciate an explaination, as i solved this through chance/trial & error!
