SharePoint questions with regards to Intranet and Extranet configurations

Hello, I am new to SharePoint configurations and am currently looking at implementing it for our Intranet and then later on down the line, maybe 1-2 years, making it also an Extranet for our clients.  I have a few questions to ask regarding this. 1.  Can a SharePoint Intranet and Extranet run on the same server? 2.  If so, what are the security risks to having the server exposed to the internet as well as the internal network, what are the solutions? 3.  If I use the free version of SharePoint 2010 (Foundation) What are the costs for Intranet client access licenses? and Extranet client access licenses? 4.  Can the SharePoint application run on a separate server from the database? Any help with these questions is greatly appreciated as well as any additional concerns I should have for this implementation. Thanks, Mike

Web parts function in intranet but not extranet

I have a sharepoint site that works perfectly from the inside. Every web part does exactly what it's supposed to do. Recently, I extended it to an extranet that uses https.  If I connect to the https site from inside my network, everything still works, even though all the links and paths change to reflect the different zone.  If I connect from my home computer, I am still able to connect, but none of my performancepoint reports or scorecards show up, and my external list just keeps spinning the green progress ball thing indefinitely.  I would imagine this is a permissions issue. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Troubleshooting Alert Emails

Hi, I have a case where one particular user is not receiving alert emails for a particular doc library.  Any help or further insight will be appreciated. Here's some background and steps I've already taken to investigate/correct the issue: MOSS 2007 SP 2 farm, multiple WFE servers, MOSS 2007 SP1 was the original install to this farm. This user is able to receive the confirmation email after the alert is initially created.  It is just the alert emails that are not being received.  The alert was created using the immediate notification setting. This same user, user A,  is also able to receive the confirmation email and subsequent alert emails from another site collection (different content DB) on the same web app of the same farm.  That alert was created using the immediate notification setting.  Another user, user B, is able to receive the confirmation email and subsequesnt alert emails from the doc library that user A is not. User A has contribute permissions on the doc library the alert was created for, User B has full-control permissions. Executed the query "select * from eventcache where eventdata is not null" against the related content database.  The query returned 0 results. Verified that the Windows SharePoint Services Timer service is running on the index server and all WFE servers. Checked the Timer Job Status

Alert emails and document id URL

With the document ID's we now have a direct URL to each document (for example http://server/_layouts/docidredir.aspx?id=whatever-x-x). But when library alerts are sent or the user uses the "Send To / Email a link" function from a document you still get the doc library/folder URL.  Is there a way to change the alert and email a link function to use the new document id url?

relative URLs inside of email body in workflow emails?

In my auto-generated emails in workflows, I provide the reader a link to a list item on the SP site.  The problem is that I seem to have to provide an absolute URL, which of course changes between development in production.  Is there a solution for this short of editing my workflow when I move to production?  I'm on MOSS 2007 and use SP Designer.

Intranet Users Challenged When Using Windows Integrated Security


We've setup an intranet site using Windows Integrated Security. Its up and running and users can access it. However, they are being challenged with a login dialog for the server when they initially access the site.

Isn't is possible to configure the server so that the users aren't challenged AND are recognized as being already authenticated by Windows? We're trying to go with a seamless experience, whereby all they have to do is login to their machine like normal and then go from there.

        DirectorySearcher search = new DirectorySearcher();

Build an Easy Maintenance Intranet Site: Using Office Docs, File System Object, and OLE Structured S


If you've ever needed to build an easy-to-maintain intranet site, here's a solution based on Microsoft Office documents. Many sites require constant updating of their HTML, but the use of Word documents can simplify the process. This article details the construction of a human resources site that exploits the File System Object (FSO), OLE Structured Storage, and ActiveX capabilities of Word documents. This allows the HR staff to copy their revised or newly created Word files to the site, dynamically generate a list of links to their files, and free IS from the constant recoding of HR updates into new HTML pages.
