External Sharepoint Access (Putting Sharepoint on Back on Remote Web Workspace) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I converted my Sharepoint installation from a single server, to a 2 server Farm with Reporting Services, and in the process accidently disconnect SP from our Remote Web Workspace. Before, we could access Sharepoint at https://remote.mycompany.com/sharepoint.  It was part of the default Essential Business Server installation.

    How can we make Sharepoint externally available again? 

    The other settings are providing some clues, but I do not know exactly what to do.
    Here is what is already setup.  Could anyone help me determine what I might have removed or changed?

  • Hi Dave60654,


    Maybe you can do this by doing some change of the Alternate Access Mappings ‘s settings. This can help you to make your SharePoint site available externally. You can go through the following two threads to get more detailed information:

  • I don't think these issues apply to my scenario.  I've followed the instructions that I see everywhere for AAM. 

    The only other clue I can provide is that when I access a site externally, the Forefront Gateway does ask for authentication.  After I enter my credentials, it says page cannot be found.  So I am reaching our network.  Perhaps this problem is related to adding a second server to the farm.  I noticed the web front end is on a different server than remote.mycompany.com.  Perhaps I put the web front end on the wrong server?  We have two servers, a mail server, and a managment server.  The front end I placed on the managment server, where I thought it was located before.  OWA is also on the mail server.  Do you think the front end should have been on the mail server, instead of the management server?  I'm confused.
