Outlook 2007 - Vista - 3G - VPN - Exchange - disconnected

hi everyone,

I am having a problem with our notebooks trying to connect to Exchange
through a 3G mobile connection and VPN (Zyxel / Greenbow client). If we
connect them through ADSL + VPN there's no problem. But as soon as it's on 3G
og modem, it won't work, Outlook says "Disconnected".

I looked around on the net and it seems that the problem exists all over,
and has been a problem for quite some time now, but I can't find any solution
elsewhere.

Here's a few facts :

- Running Vista Business SP1, Outlook 2007, Small Business Server 2003
- Trend Micro Client Server Antivirus
- Notebook/user is logging on as domain user
- Using Vodafone (Huawei) 3G card for connection
- pinging the SBS/Exchange server by name or IP works fine
- host file and LMHOSTS is pointing to server
- surfing the net works
- tried flushing DNS, nothing
- when online and running ipconfig /all the 3G card shows IPS DNS servers,
and they are apparently not to be altered, the config file on the USB dongle
is read-only - and I can't even change the R/O status
- Outlook 2003 works fine

I read somewhere about Outlook 2007 exceeding IMAP connections, but haven't
had any luck tampering with that.

Help is needed and appreciated.

Jesper

I had a similar problem using a Cisco VPN client and was able to resolve it by:

1: disabling IPV6 from all networking clients and
2: adding the WINS server for the 'Office' network

Let me know how this works
