This Support WebCast will describe how support engineers use the Microsoft Network Monitor utility to troubleshoot Exchange Client connectivity issues. We will go over a generic remote procedure call (RPC) logon sequence, best practices, tips and tricks, and why we ask for concurrent Client and Server captures to help resolve support incidents. We will also examine Network Monitor captures that were taken during support incidents to show how they helped resolve the issue.
