MS Exchange Client for Macintosh says NT Exchange server is unavailable

MS Exchange Client for Macintosh says NT Exchange server is unavailable

I can't get Mac to talk to Exchange Server at all using OT 1.1 TCP/IP.
Please let me know how you resolve your crisis.

Also, I can use only Apple Talk for file sharing with NT Services for Mac.
Will upgrade to OT 1.1.2 help?
