Publish Sharepoint 2010 site via TMG using alternative DNS Name

Hi,

We have been looking for a way to publish our team sites via TMG.  I have been able to publish the internal Sharepoint site (teams.domain.com) through TMG and accessable oer the internet as teams.domain.com.

Question has been raised, internally we access the teams site by teams.domain.com/sites/teamA, which is currently avaiable externally.  Can we have a specific name of TeamA.domain.com which hits the TMG server and is then serving the client the same information as teams.domain.com/sites/TeamA.

For the end user outside, they see a seamless page after the authentication coming from the root of TeamA.domain.com.

Can this be done?  And also can we do this internally without the need of TMG doing the redirecting?

A side note.. I have it automatically passing the credentials internally, but via the TMG it is prompting for a username and password, even though the address is a set as a Intranet address, and should work as internally.  Is this TMG stopping this?

Thanks in advance

Add A record in the public DNS (teamA) and point it to the external IP of TMG.



open path tab in the publishing rule and make as follow :

internal :/sites/teamA/*
External :/*

Also make sure to configure alternative access mapping in sharepoint site.

Sulimanw,

Thanks for that, I have teasted this and it works, but I have reference to another site, which I do not get access to, but we can change this to accomodate the requirement.

Do you know how to do this for the internal staff to be able to do the same, but without the need to hit TMG?  As I realise that the same can occur internally via TMG..

Cheers

I think you need to configure HTTP redirect in the internal site; default website to be redirected your site.
