WSS 3.0 Accessible from Internet RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running WSS 3.0 on Server 2003. Internally we access wss by using http://intranet:8080. Our firewall is using NAT. I want to give outside users (Active Directory Users) access to SP. For now, i only have a public IP address. I setup the firewall to NAT the public ip address to the internal address. I am using the port 8080 externally when trying to access it. When I try i get the message Bad Request (Invalid Hostname). I have setup Alternate Access Mapping. In the Internet field I have the http://PUBLICIP:8080 (public ip = our actual public IP).

     

    Any idea?


    Thanks, Chris

    You need to extend the web application and allow anaonymous access.

  • Hi Chris,

     

    Alternate access mappings(AAM) enable a Web application that receives a request for an internal URL, in one of the five authentication zones, to return pages that contain links to the public URL for the zone. You can associate a Web application with a collection of mappings between internal and public URLs. Internal refers to the URL of a Web request as it is received by WSS 3.0. Public refers to the URL of an externally accessible Web site. The public URL is the base URL that WSS 3.0 uses in the pages that it returns.

     

    For more information about how to configure AAM, please refer to the following articles:
