I have a intranet site running on our sharepoint server which is a member server in our single domain. I wish to allow some external sales users access to it, theye have usernames in our AD even though they are on the road most of the time.

I know how to make a site just external via sharepoint, but how can you make it internal and externally visable?

could I use a spare url the the external users and then create an internal DNS record to point to a local server to kid the internal users?

any ideas, this must need to be done all the time but I can not find anything on it...

You migth want to look into AAM ( Alternative Access Mappings) you can then access the site internally and externally.

Hi

thanks for that, I searched for Alternative Access Mappings and managed to find a site from Microsoft with a video on how to set it up, it was very easy. They did not mention the fact that if your local "intranet" sharepoint site is already on port 80 (mine is), then creating an Alternative Access Mapping on port 80 for web access (internet) has issues in IIS7, I however changed the external internet "site" to port 8888 and configured the firewalls and it worked fine.

thanks.

the site was:

by the way; that does mean my (few) external users have to use:

www.mysite.com:8888

to get prompted for a login, I used windows auth.
