I can not log to web application in sbs 2008

    General discussion

  • hello,

    I discussed this issue  before a time, that sbs is hard coded so you cann't create many web applications or you can not log on it .

    so I remember  that some one has told me that for example (remote.john.com )is only to log your sbs computer remotly so you can not use it as web application name.

    so I created a web application in sharepoint with name extranet.john.com  with http port 6918. I created also an cname record with this web application namename.  I redirect the port 6918 to my internal IP adress. also in IIS manager in bindings(for extranet.john.com) I put the IP adress for my internal ip addres. I created also  a site collection for this web application.  and I still can not log to this web application.

    I don't understand now if  next to remote.john.com which is my domain name I can not create one web application, how this is possible . if you can not create aweb application beside remote why microsoft install sharepoint in sbs?

    if I have any faults can yoy please tell me.

    thanks

    johan

  • What are you using for the URL to try to logon to this app?

  •     I have a domain name with john.com  so I have an A record with john.com  to log remotly to sbs 2008 with remote.john.com I made a CNAME record with this name. so everything is OK I can log remotly to my sbs with remote.john.com.

    now I want to learn sharepoint in sbs 2008 and 2011 , so I know that is sbs is hard coded you cann't make a second web application.

    but I heard also that you can create a one web application besides the remote record.  for example with name extranet.john.com . so I created a web application with name extranet.john.com(this is the URL I am using for the web application at this moment) which is a part of my domain name with prefix extranet.  so I made also a CNAME  record with name extranet.john.com (this is also the URL I filled in host header).   so now when I want to log on to this URL(web application) with http:// extranet.john.com I get a picture of IIS 7 manager. and when I change it to https:// extranet.john.com I get an error acces denied error 403.

    I have disabled firewall and forwarded the port of this URL to my sbs server but nothing helps.

    my first question is for you is it possible to create a web application in sbs 2008 beside the remote.john.com . if yes what I am doing wrong. I hope I could explain to you the situation.

    thanks

  •  I tried but it is not helping at all.

    but one thing I forgot to tell you when I enter https://extranet.john.com   in the URL he giving me first  an error .   there is a problem with this website security certificate  but  he giving me also an option  under it .........     continue to this website(not recommended) ...........and when I click on this option  it gives me an error .

    server error       403 forbidden:acces is denied    you do not have permission to vieuw this dirctory or page using this credentials that you supplied. 

    do you thing that it has to do with certificate problem  because I didn't create any certificate with name extranet.john.com. if so how I can create such a certificate. becaus when I go to sbs console advanced mode I see only a certificate with name remote.john.com.

    thanks

  • https://remote.john.com:6918    is not working but  https://remote.john.com:987    is working , but in this way I can not log to my web application which I created (extranet.john.com).

    what do you think, what is the solution for this problem!

    thanks very much

  • I don't have an answer I'm afraid.   This forum is more about core SBS issues.
    Have you posted in a Sharepoint forum?

  •  hello,

    with MR Chris Hanna we discussed every possibility to create a web application besides the prefix remote.john.com .   for example extranet.john.com . 

    I tried  in host header both situation http and https , I created also  self issued certificate for extranet.john.com.

    but nothing helps to log this web application extranet.john.com.    

    so I understand that sbs 2008 is hard coded  and beside the remote.john.com you can not create a web application to log on it remotely. 

    if  it is not can some one with real experience tell me why I can not log this web application remotly.because I get an error message 403 forbidden:acces is denied

    sharepoint is  a part of sbs2008, so some one got to have the answer for this problem.

    thanks

  • funny, I have several SP sites on my SBS11.

    https://mickmalloy.dyndns.org:987

    http://supergumby.dyndns.org and

    http://imho.dyndns.org

    They're all pretty well empty (those that can be viewed anonymously), and I've only recently set them up 'to play with', and being my LoungeAN I am doing something I would _NEVER_ do for a business, but it was pretty simple doing it.
