How do I publish the Sharepoint 'My Site' to the internet?

Posted on 2008-06-17
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I have created a sharepoint portal web site on port 80, extended it to port 80 with a host header, and published it to the the internet with ISA 2006 using SSL. This works very well. However.....

Internally - when I connect to the portal, I click the 'My Site' link and it opens the web page from the 'My Site' web site.
Externally - when I connect to the internet web address for the portal and then click the 'My Site' link, the page from the internal address tries to load and obviosuly fails because the internal name is not known to the outside world.

Thanks for the reply Dale. I played around with the AAMs a bit more after submitting the question above. I think I've cracked it but will find out later today.

I added the https://mysite.domain URL in the Extranet zone for the associated AAM collection. When I connect to the portal using the internet URL (https://portalname.domain) and hover the mouse over the 'Mysite' link, the URL that it will load is the correct one that I added to the AAM collection.

I am going to create a new firewall rule on ISA and use the same listener that I use for the portal. I will keep you posted or 'Accept as solution' when I find out.......

Thanks again.

Dale, sorry for the delayed reply.

The https://mysite.domain is now updated in DNS and is working online. However, when I logon to the portal over the internet and then click the 'My Site' link, the authentication box appears (Suggesting that DNS and ISA is working correctly) but when I enter the username and password the page cannot be displayed error message appears.
If I do the same process internally, everything works without error.

Case closed. It was AAMs like you said. Just had to make sure that the AAM zones matched for the Portal Site and the My Site.

I believe there was an error in this.  It looks as though the Author(ITSCSomerset) told me in the last response that I provided the correct answer, but I believe the author might have clicked the wrong button to give my first reply to the question credit for the answer.  Please review and give the first reply to the question dated 6/17/2008 full credit of the response and have user fill out the A B C grade with it.  Thank you for your time.
