- 1x front end SharePoint (SP) server
- 1x back end SP server (i.e. houses the content databases)
- 2x SP web applications
- no DMZ
I need to Extend one of our two SP web applications to our partner companies and clients across via the Internet. I don't have the capital to install an additional front end SP server and I do not want to configure a DMZ. Right now the two SP web applications are accessible on port 80 using hostheaders.
From what I can tell it seems like I can do the Extend... wizard using the same URL but specifying SSL to force the Extension site onto port 443. Since the socket will be different I would assume the site would be accessible internally via http://
using the same URL. However, I've tried doing this and the site is still only accessible via http://
... not https://
when hitting it internally. Before I NAT over 443 I'd like to see this work internally first. Please help!
