Hi
I have my sharepoint 2010 setup and I have the following access issues:

On the sharepoint server and another PC on the domain:
Works fine - http://pd3dserver6:2222/    (top level site)
Works fine - http://pd3dserver6:2222/sites/Template01    (site collection)

Through the web via www.pd3dportal.com
Works fine - directs to http://pd3dportal.com/SitePages/Home.aspx (top level site) asks for credentials, works fine)

BUT this DOESN'T work via the web:
http://pd3dportal.com/sites/Template01

Am I doing something stupidly wrong?

I simply added a binding of port 80 to the site in IIS.

Thanks

-Andrew

are you just trying to get rid of using servername:port and use FQDN on port 80 instead?

If so you will need to put a binding (host header) on port 80 for all ips that will be used for that web application in IIS.

Then you need to go into central administration and add/change your alternate access mappings so that SharePoint knows how to handle that new binding.
Alternate access mappings can be found in central administration under System Settings and then configure alternate access mappings.
Then select the web application you added the binding to. Then click on edit public urls and change the default to the host header address you used in IIS. If you may use other addresses (such as servername:port) after you click ok and are brought back to the screen of all mappings for that web app click on add internal address and put in the servername port address there.

Let me know if you have any questions

Hi
I'll try that tomorrow... but I'm trying to use www.pd3dportal.com as the web address which points to IP of the server, on all ports. I don't understand why it works on the top level site and not the site collection.

Yep so the alternate access mappings you should the trick for you. The problem is that SharePoint doesn't know what that address is. It gets to the top level site because IIS takes the request and passes you to that top level site. When you click a link SharePoint is in the middle translating and it doesn't know it owns that address.

Thanks!!!! I spent 3 hours messing with this late last night. I woke up this morning, sat with the laptop on the sofa, and 15minutes later it worked!
