Outlook Continually prompts for Username and Password using VPN

Discussion in 'Server Networking' started by Al Stephenson, Nov 16, 2005.

  1. I have setup a VPN in which clients must supply the domain name along with
    their username and password...I am using this to allow remote users to
    connect with Outlook 2003 (into Exchange 2003) in cache mode. Users are able
    to connect fine into the VPN but they are continually prompted to enter their
    network login information while the Outlook folders are being updated. If you
    select cancel Outlook goes into Offline mode.. Is there a setting in Outlook
    that I am missing that would cause this problem?

    Users can connect with Outlook Web Access through the VPN with no problems.
