Best way to expose sharepoint anonymous site by TMG

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have created a SharePoint Web Application http://testsite using Anonymous access (setting has been done on web and site collection level). In my environment I am having ForeFront TMG , so let me know how I can create a rule / listner for exposing this http://testsite for anonymous access over internet.

    As per my understanding I have created a Rule using following details and created a listner using following details. Site is working fine anonymously through internet.

    But i have one concern related to security, here I am not using SSL (I dont want to use SSL) and in listner I am using "No Authentication". So tell me is it the only way to expose sharepoint site anonymmously by using "No authentication" in listner or there is any other best way.

    Rule:

    From: http://testsite

    TO: http://testsite

    Server: XX.XX.XX.XX

    Authentication: No delegation but client may authenticate directly

    Request come from original client

    Listner:

    Authentication Method: No Authentication

    Regards

  • Hi,

    Thank you for the post.

    As far as I understand, anonymous access means you have published SharePoint site (http or https) and all the users can access the site without authentication. So just add “ALL users” in Users tab of the publishing rule.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for the update.

    “Does any one suggest me what is best way to create rule and listener for anonymous share point site access through TMG access to internet user.” – what you have done is correct, since it is anonymous rule that not require authentication.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the reply, I have set All Users already. My only concern is about the authentication type option in RULE and Listener. I have set following authentication type there. Is it correct or not..

    Rule:

    Authentication: No delegation but client may authenticate directly

    Listener:

    Authentication Method: No Authentication

    Thank you for the update.

    Yes, you can forward the Sharepoint request through TMG without pre-authentication.

  • Is it secure Way... Because all users will directly hit to SharePoint Box ( by passing TMG).
