Request failed. The underlying connection was closed.

Post by Frank on Tue Oct 20, 2009 10:14 am

I'm getting no connection with exchange 2007.

In the logging I get:
- Configured to communicate with Exchange 2007
- Ready
- Connected
- Error: Request failed. The underlying connection was closed. Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel.

Please advice?

Frank,

Almost certainly a certificate issue. Does your Exchange site have a valid certificate?

Please try double-clicking the tray icon and see if OWA opens up successfully. Does the site display a valid certificate in IE?

Nope it doesn't have a certificate.

I don't know if it will ever get one.

But i know that a different owa tray program doesn't have this issue with owa 2003.
Why should it be a problem now, with owa 2007?

Isn't there a workaround?

There are various methods for interfacing to Exchange remotely. The method that OWAtray uses is certainly different from previous methods that were compatible with Exchange 2003. Unfortunately a certificate is necessary.

I would argue that trying to use Exchange remotely without a certificate will cause you many problems out with OWAtray.

Sorry.

You may have more luck with OWANotify,

A follow-up,

as you pointed to OwaNotifier, it has an option to bypass the certificate warning for exch 2003.
Mayby this is interesting for you as well.

I certainly hope you can find away, because i'm not convinced that the certificate for the exchange server comes anywhere soon.
If you manage this I have a hole bunch of collega's that want your program for certain.

Kind regards and keep-up the good work,
Frank

Lain,

I've been testing OwaTray for a few months and it works like a charm with exchange 2007 (even with the Microsoft BPOS).
Beautiful

The only thing i didn't get to work is exchange 2003 accounts, somehow i'm keep getting the error:
Request failed. The remote server returned an error: (440) Login Timeout.

I believe this is due to an incorrect exchange url. (after i've changed the override server url in advanced options (thanks btw for implementing))
My question is;
Do you have a correct exchange 2003 server url format, so i know what format to use.


I tried:
(with and without certificate override)

Sorry, Frank, it just won't work with Exchange 2003.
2007 is a minimum requirement.
