Configure IFD for crm 2011

Hello, we have a Microsoft CRM 2011 server that we want to configure for IFD, we used some guides like this one: http://www.interactivewebs.com/blog/index.php/server-tips/microsoft-crm-2011-how-to-configure-ifd-hosted-setup/
and it worked great but at the end the users need to enter a port when they want to access the CRM from outside (for example https://myOrg.MySite.com:444).

We tried to switch the ports so that the ADFS will be on another port and the CRM will be on 443 and it didn't worked, we tried to add another IP for the server and use 1 for the CRM and 1 for the ADFS and got stuck with an error: "each identifier for a relying party trust must be unique across all relying party trusts in AD FS 2.0"

My question is there a way to Configure IFD for CRM 2011 so that the user can enter the URL without the port?

Thanks in advance for the response

Hi halim_isr,

Yes it is possible to achieve just make sure you install on different servers and use 443 as a default port.

Yes you can configure it for a different port, but my guess will be that you are using the ADFS2 server on the same server and that the ADFS2 server is usign port 443 for it's standard authentication.  That is the standard config, so you will need to change that port first away from 443, but then you will have to adjust all of the ADFS2 settings with the correct endpoint adresses etc.

Unless you know ADFS2 and IFD deployments inside out, you could fine yourself getting a bit stuck!

One simple fix would be to put a simple html redirect command on the index.aspx etc in the website that is on port 443 that redirects to the correct address with the :444

So user types in   http://server in and the default page for that server just has a redirect to http://server:444
