Configuring SharePoint 2010 to allow access for external users

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

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

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?

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

Sharepoint 2010 - Lists not displaying Edit (Link to item) for Users with Edit Only access

  

Hi

I am using Sharepoint 2010.  I have several lists whose view includes the column "Edit (Link to Item)" in the default view.  I am the site admin so when I view the list the "Edit" column appears with the small "paper and pencil" icon and it works when clicked. 

I needed some users to only be able to view and edit existing items (not add or delete).  So I have created a site level permissions that I copied from "Read" and only checked the "Edit Items  -  Edit items in lists, edit documents in document libraries, and customize Web Part Pages in document libraries" under Lists. 

This new permission level does allow users to see the edit menu item on the standard "Title" hyperlink dropdown, but in the"Edit" column there isn't an icon or any clickable link to edit in the column.  Only from the menu.  Its as if the icon won't appear if I don't give them Add capability which is what I don't want.

 Thanks for any tips,

VA

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.

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.

Configuring Profile Image Export in SharePoint 2010

  
It's no secret that I am thrilled with the new social features of SharePoint 2010. I am most excited about the new Profile Picture handling. I strongly believe that the more we can show the faces of our colleagues to one another the more connected we will feel. Clearly Microsoft feels that way as witnessed by the many features that make use of the Profile Image like the Activity Feed and Colleagues list
