Microsoft SharePoint Access Over Internet

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#


I'm making a standalone SharePoint site for my team. I have successfully configured SharePoint 2010 on a Windows 2008 R2 server. However, the problem is, I cannot connect to the server from any external computer. I'm a bit new to the SharePoint software, as well as the installation process. I'm not exactly sure what ports I should forward either. 

I would also like to know about the entire domain situation. Will I have to register a domain name? Can I use a Dynamic DNS server? 


Any help would be greatly appreciated. 


Thank you

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

What I've done so far.
On SharePoint: - 1) I've created 1) Library for my Form-Template, 2) A Library for my Data Connection, and 3) A Library for my Form.
On InfoPath I've: - 1) Defined my Data Connection Options, 2) Defined my Form Options, and promoted the appropriate meta-data, 3) Defined the necessary Submit Options. and 4) Published the Form-Template to the SharePoint Form-Template Library.

Issue:  On SharePoint, when I try to create a New Form from my Form-Template, I get the error shown above <Alert http://sharepointsite/>- "This featre requires Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or later and a Windows SharePoint Services-compatible XML editor such as Microsoft Office InfoPath."


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.

"Microsoft.SharePoint Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))"



I am adding an item to a list programatically. The credential under which the code runs has contribute permission to list. When the code is executed, it adds the item to the list with below exception. I guess, after adding the item to the list it calls SetListProps method where it throws exception. Any one can help why it is? Because of this my code is not moving ahead as it breaks here because of this exception

Microsoft.SharePoint Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED)) at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPGlobal.HandleUnauthorizedAccessException(UnauthorizedAccessException ex) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequest.SetListProps(String bstrUrl, String bstrListName, Boolean bMigrate) at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPList.Update(Boolean bFromMigration) at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPList.Update()

However, if I give full control it works fine.

Also, with the same credential, a new item can be added to the list with out any issue from the front end.

Thanks you


MVC architecture in ASP.Net using C# and Microsoft Data Access Application block

The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern separates the modeling of the domain, the presentation, and the actions based on user input into three separate classes [Burbeck92]:

Model. The model manages the behavior and data of the application domain, responds to requests for information about its state (usually from the view), and responds to instructions to change state (usually from the controller).

View. The view manages the display of information.

Controller. The controller interprets the mouse and keyboard inputs from the user, informing the model and/or the view to change as appropriate.

DHTML and .NET: Host Secure, Lightweight Client-Side Controls in Microsoft Internet Explorer


In the past, Web developers often used ActiveX controls if they wanted customized client-side functionality incorporated into their Web applications.

New Directions in Redirection: Microsoft Internet Information Services 5.0 Provides Two New Methods


Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0 provides several enhancements to its support for ASP-based Web development, including two new server-side redirection methods: Server.Transfer and Server.Execute. Rather than redirecting requests with a round-trip to the client, these new methods can be used to transfer requests directly to an ASP file without ever leaving the server. While this functionality doesn't replace the Response.Redirect method used by IIS 4.0, you can take advantage of it to implement better application flow control mechanisms and to handle errors more efficiently. The different redirection options are described, along with some tips and tricks for implementing them on your own site.
