Permissions in SharePoint 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can I give permission to SharePoint 2007 for someone who is not in my network? For example, I have a VP who would like to be able to access SharePoint from her iPad or other device that is not connected to the network. Can this be done?

  • is your portal accessible from the internet?  if so then of course you can give them access.  they will just have to log in.

  • This is the 2010 forum, not the 2007 forum.  Is your question related to 2010 at all?

    It doesn't matter what network a user is in as long as they have an account with access to SharePoint and as long as the device can access your SharePoint URL from wherever it is being used.  This is not a SharePoint question, but rather a basic networking question.  Can your VP access the internal network from her iPad?  How?  VPN?  Direct access?  Something else?  Whatever the case, the answer is the same for accessing SharePoint.

  • Right. I was originally looking for a forum regarding SharePoint 2007, but didn't have any luck originally. I'll look again.

    She is able to get VPN access on her iPad. So that will solve the access issues.

    Thanks for the help.

  • FYI - I found a forum for SharePoint Server 2007, and it routed me here. So it's the same forum apparently.

  • These are the pre-2010 forums, which is where your question would belong (under one of the forums listed at this link):

    No, the pre-2010 forums do not route here.

  • The one I found did route here. But I will try the one posted by Thomas.

  • Thank you Thomas. I have located a pre-2010 forum that works for my questions. Have a good day.

  • Just an FYI - this was moved already to the correct forums.  It is now in the Sharepoint pre-2010 forums.
