Discussion board & tasks

The discussion board and tasks work fine on our internal network, but when accessing externally from the Internet via ISA both items do not work and an error displaying an unrecognised URL appears. Any ideas would be really appreciated

Check your Alternative Access Mappings for the site.  You need to have both an Internal URL and an External URL set.

Hi Chapmanjw,

Thanks for the reply, sorry but i haven't had time to get back to this issue so I'm looking at it now. Here is some more info which i noticed today. Our internal sharepoint server has a different internal address to the (external portal address which i know is obvious) eg

internal:- http://sharepointserver:22122
extrnally we use:- http://portal.ourschool.com, which gets us to ISA and eventually to sharepoint.


So when I go to say the IT admin subsite internally it is:-
http://sharepointserver:22122/sites/ITADMIN
externally its' http://portal.ourschool.com/sites/ITADMIN
Which is great and works fine because the first part of the address changes, However when i click on a discussion, it reverts to the full INTERNAL (http://sharepointserver:22122/sites/ITADMIN/lists..etc)
which  obviously wont show externally, as soon as i edit the internal site address in the address bar and change it to 'http://portal.ourschool.com, bingo. it works.

So please let me know, what the issue can be and how exactly I can fix it, it also happens to the 'Tasks' part

Many thanks
