http intranet and https internet - Same Sharepoint Site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone!

     

    I have a task that sounds fairly simple but I cannot seem to figure it out.  I have  Sharepoint 2010 site that I'd like our employees to access internally and via the internet.  The trick is I want this ONE site to perform as such

     

    Client accessing sharepoint within internal network (Intranet)-->Sharepoint server presents client with http (port 80) version of the site using only Windows Authentication

    Client accessing sharepoint outside internal network using an http address (http://sp.domain.com) (Internet)-->Sharepoint server presents client with with HTTPS (port 443) version of the site using only Basic Authentication.

     

    I can easily access the SSL site by using the https address but I don't want my users having to manually type in the secure site address.  Also, just using the https version via internet, it will always present me with Windows Authentication although Basic authentication is enabled.  It appears that Windows Authentication supersedes Basic.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

  • Hi All,

    From Central Admin > Web Application Management > Click on the WebApp you would like to manage and Click Extend. By extending your webApp to another IIS Site you have the internal site use port 80 and NTLM Auth while the external IIS Site uses SSL and theinternal IIS Site uses Windows Auth. this also automatically manages the AAM settings and Host Header information if any is used. I recommend using 2 seperate IP Address specifically if you are using the same Name / URL internally and externally. this will allow you use to seperate A Records the internal one pointing to the the IP Address bound to the Internal Windows Auth IIS Site.

    I'm assuming that I need to select "Create a new IIS web site."  However, I want them to be virtually identical and use the same content pool.  In the "Extend" dialogue window, should I change the "Path" to the same path as the site I'm extending?

     

    Thanks
