Set up SP Foundation for Internet access?

I'm an Administrator, with a Sharepoint Foundation single server installation, set up in a Workgroup using local server credentials.

I want to set a site up for Internet access. It's a simple presence site, so there won't be the standard CMS-type SP site.

Basically, open Anonymous access web-wide, with a way for a few people to update (add a press release, edit some text.)

I figure that as it is, I can leave the site in the Default zone.

Any step-by-steps on what I need to do to accomplish what I want?

Thanks!

Hey G-Brain,

This is for WSS. Same for Foundation? I know they're a similar product, but I'd imagine that some evolution has taken place. In the past, I've set up AAMs for MOSS, but not for an Internet, Anonymous site with FBA to local users.

Anything more specific?

Sorry I diddn't see that :D

at firtst you have to check that your server is accesible to the internet (Firewall etc. ),
then set up a Proxy( over tmg or isa)  and to configure DNS and IP.
Then need to make the IP address accessible and mapped to a public DNS name.
And now you have to update AAM in SP to respond to the public dns name.

and here is a very good Video about AAM ;)

Free Tool: IP Lookup

Get more info about an IP address or domain name, such as organization, abuse contacts and geolocation.

Muchos gracias.

I'm wondering about the relationship between Anonymous Access and FBA. For a MOSS extranet site, we set up the Internet-facing site's config for FBA, where external users would hit the standard login page. External accounts would authenticate through an ISA server.

This time, it's far more stripped down. Single server installation, SQLExpress, no domain access.

My thinking is that all users would hit the external site, and the handful of Contribute users would be members of a SP group. These users would go to www.mysite.com/login.aspx, log in, and be granted Contribute privileges. Not sure if it's as simple as all that, or if there's a more sophisticated way of accomplishing this. I'm still getting the hang of 2010;)

Hi,
so you can give anonymous access to a site.

But i don't think that it works the way you want.

You can give some Users contribute privileges and you have to set up permissions for subsites. And the group can do changes on your site.
So you have to set up at first anonymous access
 http://www.topsharepoint.com/enable-anonymous-access-in-sharepoint-2010
and then give in site actions--> Permission the User Group special permissions.

best regards
