I'm wondering what would be necessary configuration wise to setup an extranet, i've found a ton of articles that provide little peices to how the formula works but nothing that really links all of the components...
If i had a farm on the outside of my company firewall, i think i would need the following from what i've researched...am i missing something? The goal is to enable partners to access the content with Live ID's as well as allowing internal users the abiltiy to log in with their company domain accounts? This way they can collaborate.
I would need to create a claims based web application to host the team sites. I would need to some how work with my domain admins to get it to use Active Directory Federated Services that way i can leverage the Live ID's. I have read that using a Unified Access Gateway like forefront would be best as well.
At that point it should work? i'm probably missing alot of peices but i'm hoping someone can fill in the blanks and give me a better understanding of how it would work.
