Sharepoint Portal Web server on DMZ
Posted on 2006-06-12
Is it possible to have the Sharepoint Portal Web server on the DMZ with the other Sharepoint servers on the internal network? We will be using the 3-server configuration.
Microsoft mentions in the documentation that the web server must be part of the domain to allow for content crawling on the Intranet.
I am trying to balance that with my fear of allowing connections from any IP (Internet) to the internal network.
I have seen some posts on EE that suggest this may be inevitable.
I guess the other alternative is to configure the firewall to allow domain traffic to the DMZ, but this also seems to defeat the purpose.
Thanks for your input.
