    Hey All,

    Just in case someone else encounters this problem, I thought I would document it here and hopefully someone from ESET will be able to provide a fix.

    I was having problems using remote management of the Exchange 2010 console with access denied messages related to kerberos. When I excluded the IP Address of the exchange server in ESET's Protocol Filtering.

    This behaviour was not exhibited in version 4, just version 5.

    This problem still exists in the Release Candidate.

    I've reproduced the issue and created the necessary logs for the developers.

    the problem is in badly coded multipart responses, apparently MS coders did not adhere to RFC standards (http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc1341/7_2_Multipart.html). There's extra space in the boundary and "-- Encrypted Boundary--" is ended incorrectly as well (it's not preceded by 0x0D 0x0A).
    We'll make a workaround for this to the Internet protection module so that the http communication works fine even in cases like this.

    Oh look, Microsoft not adhering to standards! That's a first. /sarcasm

    Thanks for the update Marcos.

    Hi Marcos,

    Sadly, the problem still exists in RTW.

    Any word on the workaround? That big red "X" and the words "NON FUNCTIONAL" are making people nervous.

    Headzup to others looking for wisdom on the issue: my remote management consoles are not affected--just the tools on the server itself. So one workaround is to install mgmt tools on your PC. ;)

    It should work with the Internet protection module 1041 currently available on pre-release servers.
