I am a junior sharepoint admin at some government public bureau.

Recently i've been trying to figure out how to make an internal sharepoint web app (MOSS 2007) on a specific port (e.g: http://web:20000) accessible from the internet, still using the default port (e.g: http://web.example.com:20000/)...or any other port than port 80 ?

Besides extending the web app to same port, and then configure this in AAM, what else is missing?

Is there any additional setting that i have to configure in IIS, Active Directory, or the local DNS server?

there are several ways to achieve this. Most important for public sites with SharePoint is the same like with others: hardening! So before we can start planning your publishing let's collect some further information:

Which Authentication do you plan for external users? Which Firewall/Proxy product do you use in front of SharePoint (ISA, TMG, UAG, other)?

  • Thankyou sir for your response, I am still using Windows Authentication (NTLM), i read several books about sharepoint, and the authors mentioned about Kerberos, but they refer to some MSDN link (which i still trying to understand)...is it Kerberos that hard ? I have ISA Server 2006, and my farm were: 2WFE + 1 SQL + 1 Active Directory + 1 email server (Exchange 2007 SP2) All running windows server 2003 R2 with latest service pack, sorry if my explanation not clear enough... Regards,
