Problems connecting to exchange server through VPN

Unanswered Question
Jan 21st, 2008

I use Cisco VPN client version over a cellular line. Telenor 3G. I use a Nokia E65 with nokia PC suite and standard bluetooth modem.

The tunnel connects and all is well until I open Outlook. I get prompted for a username/password. None of the usernames work. I tried everything from domain admin to testuser. I get the following error:

It works fine with VPN over xDSL. Does anyone know what's up?

I have this problem too.

It's an issue with Certificate being used for authentication. Make sure the trusted certificate is installed. Refer the microsoft site for the workatound.

If it is a certificate error, why does it work on xDSL and when I use a windows mobile with connection sharing over bluetooth or cable?

For info. VPN Client has the following resolved issue stated in the readme-file:


Resolved Issues:

CSCsh15103 Client using a Digital Cert cant connect thru a Cable/DSL router


It's the opposite of your problem but might be worth a try anyway?

Also, have you tried the usual MTU change to 1300. Outlook have problems if there are any MTU issues on the way.
