Enabling external access to SharePoint via ISA web publishing rule

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

The current setup is something like this:

The SharePoint 2007 farm is a member of DomainA (2008 R1), as is the ISA2006 array that publishes SharePoint using FBA.  Delegation from the ISA FBA to SharePoint is set to negotiate and Kerberos is set up.  All company user accounts are in DomainA.  All access to SP by users is via ISA (odd, I know, but we are bit like a 3<sup>rd</sup> party supplier with a single client in that regard)

This works fine for company users but now I need to allow access to external users.  The 2 requirements I’ve got (and am struggling with) are:

1.       External users should be required to authenticate against ISA first, as it the case for company users

Problems with access to external lists in SharePoint 2010

Our environment is SharePoint 2010 Enterprise, Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard and SQL server 2008 R2.   We have External lists that access a local database in SharePoint SQL Server. When new lists are added and permissions are given in the SharePoint Central Administration the domain users had to be in the Windows administration group to access the lists.   Recently in the same environment the domain users were removed from Windows Administration user group and could access the external lists.   In another similar test server we found adding the domain users to Windows Administration does not give the new domain users access to External lists.   The inconsistency is the issue. Has anyone seen this issue or provide a possible solution?

External Sharepoint 2007 Personal Site Access

Can anyone advise the steps/best way to achieve this?






Granting external non-domain users SharePoint 2007 access?

Hello all,

As you can well surmise, I've installed SharePoint 2007 on a server and require assistance. We have two sites. The primary site is for internal use only and the other site, a sub-site, is for communications and collaboration with select colleague organizations who are not members of our domain. How can I add these users to allow them access to this sub-site without giving them user accounts in our domain?

What I have done so far is enable SSO and add our users to have rights on the root site. That all works. I then created the sub-site. As a test from a thread I found, I added my GMail account username as a local user account on the SharePoint server. This did, indeed, allow me to add that user and give him rights to login, but I discovered that there is no way to modify the user's profile and, thusly, cannot specify an email address. What good is SharePoint is you can't get email notifications from it?

It then occured to me to create a new user group in the DC and create accounts for them there while at the same time limiting their access to only the SharePoint server and not have any local or remote login rights. Interestingly, the accounts will login after three tries, and then shows blank pages.

Anyway, what I need is to get these users in, have enough profile information that they can receive email from the server as neede

Configuring SharePoint 2010 to allow access for external users


I have just installed SharePoint 2010 on a Windows 2008 R2 server.  It works fine from the LAN but I cannot access it from the Web.  I have my router configured to forward all port 80 traffic to the virtual server so the problem is not there.  When I try to connect via the IP address or FQN that points to the same IP, I get a "Cannot Display the Page" error.

I have done this before and it worked fine but I'm missing something in the setup with Windows 2008 to allow external access. 

Appreciate any help.

Thanks, Ken

Sharepoint 2010 external anonymous access


Am I correct that to allow external access to a Sharepoint 2010 site (through TMG 2010) without a login prompt I have to have claims-based authentication enabled.

If this is the case can someone tell me how really to change the authentication from classic to claims on an existing site collection? I have found two suggested methods.






sharepoint 2007 site external access


I am working on some code that I am writing on my dev site.  When you click a button, you are sent to a third party site, when you are done filling out a form, it kicks you back to my page.  This is done my referer.

On my test site, I created a site called test so if I go to http://test, my site comes up.  This won't work for my code development because the third party site must kick back to my site.  Since http://test isn't on the web, it won't work.

I set up a dyndns account so if you go to http://myhost.dyndns.org, the router points you to my vm.  If I go http://myhost.dyndns.org:5555, it goes to my central admin site.  If I go to http://myhost.dyndns.org, I get a random iis page, but not my sp site.


How do I change my sp2007 site, so I can access it from that other url?

External users can logon to sharepoint but cannot access folders.

We migrated a database to a new server running a fresh install of Sharepoint Services 3 and WSS. Internally we can access the Sharepoint sites and navigate around and open shared documents. External users can successfully log on to the website and navigate from page to page, they can even open documents that are listed on a page. However, they cannot open any FOLDER listed in the Project Documentation. They get an "address not found"  page error. Internal users can  these folders without any problem.
I am thinking it's a permission issue but my experience with Sharepoint leaves alot to be desired.
Any help in fixing this problem would be appreciated.

Enabling Users to Maintain SharePoint Content

When SharePoint is installed as a corporate intranet, there is a considerable amount of effort involved in maintaining the content to keep the site relevant. As we discussed in the first few parts of this series, SharePoint has many built-in features to reduce the burden on the site administrator.

Some areas of the site usually contain less-dynamic information. Internal memos and corporate policies are common examples of this information. One option for this information is to post these documents in a document library. Documents in a library are often stored in a few different formats: Word, Acrobat (PDF), or HTML. Each of these formats has its drawbacks.

SharePoint Portal Server 2001: Search and Access Disparate Data Repositories in Your Enterprise


The knowledge worker is greatly empowered if she is able to access information across the enterprise from a central access point. With the SharePoint Portal Server 2001 Search Service you can catalogue information stored in Exchange public folders, on the Web, in the file system, and even in Lotus Notes databases. This article discusses the use of ActiveX Data Objects and the Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning protocol for creating search solutions based on SharePoint Portal Server 2001.

Sharepoint site client access denied


I have an sharepoint application which was working fine.

I encountered a license expired message in sql server enterprise evaluation 2008 version after which i changed the date to 2 months earlier date, I have also changed HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\100\ConfigurationState to 3 after which sql server started working but the issue is that the clients are unable to access the sharepoint site completely. On providing the url the web site requests for logon information and then access is denied. The same url with the same authentication credentials is accessible from the server and the entire application works fine from the server. 

From the  client the below error page appears.

You are not authorized to view this page

You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

Please try the following:

  • Contact the Web site administrator if you believe you should be able to view this directory or page.
  • Click the Refresh button to try again with different credentials.

HTTP Error 401.1 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials.

Sharepoint "Access denied"


I'm stuck on the sharepoint access problem now.


We are using Manged Sharepoint 2007 (a hosted version of Microsoft® Windows SharePoint Services 2007) provided by a hosting company.

With the sharepoint site, some of users can not access the site. Message:

Access denied.

You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource


It does not offer any logon prompt.


Users who can not access the sharepoint site are usually sitting in a LAN. I think it might be blocked by their policy. Am I right? Why do they need to block this site?


Please help me with this question.
