Authentication for External Users to Access MOSS 2007 Resources

Our MOSS 2007 supports users from two domains that authenticate using windows.  Our clients WindowsXP in domain#1 and WindowsVista in domain#2 (which has presented problems authenticating to MOSS 2007.  I would like to give access to external users outside of those two domains.  However, our management does not want to establish trusts between domains.  What would be the best practice to accomplish this?  Additionally, will MOSS 2010 or Forefront resolve these issues?

Alternate Access mapping - Intranet site

Hi All, I'm banging my head against a brick wall here trying to setup an alternate access mapping for an intranet site in SharePoint 2007. I have a default site setup which has the following public default URL: http://SERVERNAME:2586 I want users to access the site using the URL http://Intranet Now from reading about alternate access mappings I thought this should be as simple as adding an internal url of http://intranet under the intranet zone. With this set up I preceded to add the binding to the IIS website. I added the binding with All Assigned IP addresses, port 2586, and host as Intranet. The final thing I did to check this was to add an entry to the hosts file for the server IP address with the host name of intranet. This was followed by a flush of the DNS cache on the server. Whgen trying to access the site using the URL i now get the IIS7 welcome page, but not the SharePoint site I expected. Can anyone point me in the direction of what i've done wrong, Its got me stumped. Cheers, Grant

Alternate Access Mapping Problems

I have set up a windows server 2003 and sharepoint 3.0 on the same computer. First, I set up two "New Host A" in my DNS Server - Forward Look up Zones and then I tried to access the websites. No luck.  I went to the run command and pinged both sites to see if they worked. They pinged as they should. Then I went into Sharepoint and set up the Alternate Access Mappings with a default and extranet zone. A login box appeared which won't accept my administrator password or anyone else's.  I can log directly into all site collections that I have developed. I saw that you advised someone with regards to their login and browser but could you explain in more detail what you mean by that?  I am a bit stupid sometimes. :-) I also changed all the properties in my DNS Server host records to have full administrator privileges. Can you please advise if I should take that back off as a precautionary security measure. It didn't resolve my problem anyway. Thanking you in advance. Tracey

MOSS 2007 - Only site Collection Administrators can access Default.aspx



I have MOSS 2007, and there is a strange problem: on Default.aspx page can access only site Collection Administrators. Other users take this access denied message:

Error: Access Denied 

Current User 

You are currently signed in as: domain**\user**

Sign in as a different user 

Request access

On other pages they can access, by example on http://portal/_layouts/settings.aspx other users can access(if they have these rights).

Other users are members of Owners Group(Root site > People and Groups > Home Owners(in "Group Settings" there is Full Control checkbox).
They are also added to Site Settings > Permissions directly with Full Control. no effect.

I think it is very strange, it looks like some permissions for root page are broken..

Setup to access moss 2007 externally when a proxy server is enabled on the internet connection



Does anyone know what setup is required to allow an internet connection with a proxy server enabled to authenticate properly with moss 2007?

The credentials dont get accepted at the moment and the screen goes blank (white) after the three attempts. I gather this has something to do with NTLM not being allowed throguh the proxy server which is the authentication method we have used at the moment.

Allowing external access to a MOSS 2007 site?


I know this has been asked a million times but...Allowing external access to a MOSS 2007 site

I just can't figure it out, here is what I have done so far;

  •  Extended the web application the I want to access externally on port 39397
  •  NTLM Authentication
  • Allow Anon = No
  • Use SSL = No (Ideally I will want to use SSL but just trying to get it to work first)
  • URL = http://<servername>:39397
  • Zone = Internet (I really do not understand what these zones do, I have tried extranet and Internet)

Then I have gone to Alternate Access mappings and;

  • set the Public URL for the Internet zone to be http://<FQDN>:39397
  • created DNS record internally for <FQDN> to point to <server> for testing purposes


So internally this works and I can navigate the site but on my firewall I have set up NAT for port 39397 to point to <server> but the page never loads...What am I missing?

Unable to open pdf from document library MOSS 2007


When I click on a pdf document uploaded in a document library it comes up with a blank page. 

I guess it's trying to open pdf on the browser. I turned off "Display PDF in browser " option in Adobe Preferences, but it doesn't help, same issue.

I tried other browsers too, it's the same issue.

I am able to open all other pdf files local to my machine fine.

I am using IE 8 on my machine (Windows 7) and the Sharepoint server is MOSS 2007.



MOSS 2007 License and Pricing

I just need a small help related to MOSS 2007 License and Pricing.

The scenario is that we have the following number of servers and users are 750.

# moss-SQl1 - (DB server 1)
# moss-SQl2 - (Mirrored DB server 2)
# moss-app -    (Application server)
# WFE1 -  (Web front end server 1)
# WFE2 -           (Web front end server 2)
# MOSS-SQLWITNESS –   (witness server for database mirroring)

To my understanding we need to purchase:
MOSS 2007 Server Licenses -- 2 @ 4424$
Enterprise CALs           -- 750 @ 75$ + 94$ for standard CAL

and it amounts to: 2 * 4424 + (75+94) * 750 =   8848 + 126750 = 135598$.

I think this calculation has gone wrong somewhere. Could you please correct me if I assumed anything wrong here.

One more question is: If we purchage one CAL, can this be used by only one user?

Thanks, Chandralekha
