External Access To Sharepoint Sites..

Hi,
im exploring options in regards to giving access to external customers to our internal sharepoint 3.0 farm. we only use sharepoint 3.0 (no office portal), I like to know-

- What is the best and easiest way to give access (without having to make huge changes to our setup)
- Access needs to be controlled, where we can see who is doing what
- what other options are available to do this

Currently all our domain users internally and externally login and authenticate via AD for access, and relevant permissons to sites to our sharepoint farm.

For this i will allocate 500 points as i think this is a difficult question to resolve (i think) hopefully not for the experts :)  

please try to provide something that is step by step...

Thanks

here is the easiest way to do it..

form auth..advantage is you can give permission when it is accessed from internet. and by default internal site will use NTLM ;)

you can also use HTTPS for extranet/internet zone so that it will become secure as well.

hope this will help.

also consider that you'll need to handle user licensing.  it is not free.  you'll at least need the Internet Connection license, and perhaps other licenses depending on your scenario.

we use https access for our users coming in from outside and use windows integrated and basic  authentications in IIS..
