Publish sharepoint site on the internet?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi Folks, after reading a few other Q&A's on here thought i'd just have to write one myself and see what sort of responses i got.

I have created an intranet and internet website on a Server2008r2 box with sharepoint 2010. What i want to do is now publish both these on the internet. The intranet one so that people i work with can log in to it and use it for controlling documents and calendars etc, and the internet one so that I have a public accesible website for anyone to look at.

The sites have been created. The server is connected to the internet with a dedicated line. I just wan to get them out there now and start using them.

Noted on one of the other posts i may need an connector licence. Which is fair enough, but really what i want to do just now before i get things out in the open area of the net is just be able to connect to the sites myself for testing from any other internet connection.

So far im having no luck.

Whats the quickest and best route to making sure i can at least access the sites from the internet?

Any help would be great but this is however my first time working with Sharepoint and IIS properly so help IN DETAIL would be even more appreciated.

Im used to just using online hosts and not hosting myself.

Creating and sharing new sharepoint site to internet, limiting user access

I am a new hire into an existing business as I.T. I know the networking, I know the computers. The owner now wants me to learn Sharepoint among some other things. They currently use WSS 3.0. I have been reading up on this for the last month. I think I am ready to extend the current site to make it an Internet site so the employees can login. Some other things we would like to do I have read up on and it looks like they can be done, things such as inventory tracking in collaboration with QuickBooks and creating a website / portal for clients to have a unique login on and can see the status of their jobs in custom SharePoint lists. As far as I can tell the clients need an AD account. However, apart from that I am not sure what to do. A little background.  The company has multiple clients, and we ship things out daily to those clients.  We use Sharepoint to track the status of the jobs as they progress through the stages ultimately going to delivery. There is one common page that lists all the jobs by all clients that is updated constantly. We would like to allow multiple (different) clients/logins and have a page customized for each client.  For example, you are a client and go to www.companyname.com/sharepointsite.html.  From there you would get to a portal page with a login. Once logged in you will be presented with the Shar

Internet facing SharePoint site - user shouldn't have to log in to change the langague

Hello, I am using SharePoint 2010 for Internet sites.  Anonymous access has been enabled.  Language packs have been installed so that users can switch to different languages as required.  However, the only way for a different language to be selected other than the default is for the user to log into the site and then the option would be displayed.....This is an internet facing site with anonymous access therefore users shouldn't have to log in to change the language.  Can someone guide/advise on switching the lanuguage of the site without loggin in. Thanks, Shelley

Host-named site collections and content deployment jobs (SharePoint 2007 Internet facing Web Sites)



I have an editing web application with multiple site collections (only accessible internally on a dedicated port), and I've one public facing web application (on port 80). Now I want to create several host-named site collections in the public facing web application (to limit the number of web apps in the farm), and then use content deployment jobs to push the content from the site collections on the editing web app into these host-named site collections.

Does anyone have any experience with this?
Do you see any issues?

Publish SharePoint to the internet

cannot access sharepoint site through Internet Explorer 8 on a machine running Win XP Service Pack 3


The Sharepoint portal can be accessed fine through Firefox. Opera allows me to access it, but I cannot sign out, check out a shared document or do anything which opens a small window on clicking an option.

I can stay with Firefox, but when I try to edit a shared Word document in Word I get the message "Edit document requires a Windows Sharepoint Services compatible application and Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or greater" We need to edit a shared document/calendar which is uploaded. All I know is we are using Sharepoint 2007 and the version of our site is Does that mean we have Windows Sharepoint Services SP2 on our Sharepoint server?

When I try Internet Explorer, I cannot log on at all. I get a window which asks for my credentials which I enter, it fails to authenticate me, then shows me the You are not authorized to view this page message. I tried with different computers, but cannot get in using Internet explorer.

What could be the issue?

Our Sharepoint admin does not have time to look into such matters so I am on my own.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

How to make my SharePoint 2010 site accessible from internet?


I have a sharepoint site on a production server here "http://servername:10500/sites/mysite" which accepts AD accounts - I'd need to make this accessible from internet; how could I do that?

Our admin has mapped our "http://subdomain.company.net" in DNS to point to the above url but I'm getting the following error message:

"Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

In SharePoint central administration of the "http://servername:10500" web application, I have added an internal url of "http://subdomain.company.net" for Internet Zone; not sure if I should have done that?

what else do I have to do?

Many thanks.



How to publish all the draft documents in SharePoint site Collection




I have filtered all the draft documents using the “All Draft Documents” view in our site collection. It gives me a good list of draft documents in site collection.


Unfortunately, I’ am not able to publish all Draft documents at one shot as the “Approve” option is greyed out.


Is there any way to approve all the documents at one time instead of one at a time?


Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

What is a SharePoint site for?
A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
Share information and keep in touch with other people.
