Cannot access Sharepoint externally

I can access sharepoint from internally.  I forwarded Port 443 to the internal server in my network.  For some reason I cannot access them.  If I look at the logs in the router I do see the translation going through.  Its a simple Linksys broadband router as well and all the other Port Forwards work.

How about your web application in IIS? DId you add 433 to existing one or you extended one and use port 433?

Thanks.

Check the URL of your share point server.  If it is something like:
https:\\blahblah.com:8081\blahblah
you need to forward port 8081 (in this example)

Make sure you are using the correct IP address dynamic DNS etc,
Also check the IIS manager for sharepoint and make sure it will accept connections from any IP address.

Have you setup DNS to forward all port 80 request from external to 433? Is this link setup in DNS so external user can use it?

Thanks.

Are you trying to access a URL for it? (https://sharepoint.yourdomain.com) - If so did you set up alternate address mappings in Sharepoint Administration, Operations?

What kind of message are you getting when you try to connect, and what address are you using?

Check the Alternate access mappings in the operation tabs of the Central administration page. You need to mention the URL of different zones there!!

There is no isting or alternative access mappings on that page.

On the server console hosting sharepoint go to > "Administrative Tools" > "Sharepoint 3.0 Central Administration" > "Operations" Tab. Under the heading "Global Configuration" on the right side you should see "Alternate access mappings" Click on it, then add "Internal" address mappings as needed.

When adding:
- Make sure the "Alternate Access Mapping Collection:" references the sharepoint site you are working on, if not click the arrow in the box and "Change Alternate Access Mapping Collection"
- Enter the full address i.e. (http://sharepointsite.yourdomain.com) or (http://sharepointsite.domain.local) etc.
- Select the Zone the URL references.

It is sharepoint 2.0.  Is there an upgrade from 2.0 to 3.0?  I don't want to lose any of the information they have entered.

Ahhha - 2.0. There should still be an alternate access configuration for 2.0. It has been awhile since I've used 2.0 and I don't remember how to get there. Here's a walkthrough on setting it up (http://msd2d.com/Content/Tip_viewitem_03NoAuth.aspx?section=Sharepoint&id=B773EF3B-A362-47CF-A08E-E4EE2FDBE09B) in what I believe is 2.0.

As for the upgrade - yes you can go from 2.0 to 3.0 without losing your site. I would recommend it as there are lots of improvements. I HIGHLY recommend doing some research first - you can start here (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepointtechnology/HA100773421033.aspx) then review (http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver/WSS/en/library/700c3d60-f394-4ca9-a6d8-ab597fc3c31b1033.mspx?mfr=true) at a minimum. And as with any upgrade, make sure your backups are current and you are prepared. I upgraded my test server from 2 to 3 without much fuss - but I do not have a very active site there as it is mostly for development and testing.
