Sharepoint Extended Web Application - Fix broken links

Posted on 2012-08-12

Hi all,

We have recently extended our Sharepoint intranet to the internet. Links some hardcoded links are broken (as expected), but I was wondering if I could re-route some others?

Current working links are like this:
Internal Intranet: http://myintranet/whatever.aspx
External Internet:

How can I can I get a link like this to work?
Internal link on intranet: http://AnotherInternalServer/mylink.htm

I.e. in the top example, myintranet is substituted for the external IP and port, but how do I substitute another webserver?

    If it's an external IP that you're routing into your server, to changed server you'll need to make sure your new server is configured to respond to that IP address and then in your firewall's port routing section you need to change the internal IP that it routes traffic to.

    as far as I know you might use either Link translation filter from ISA Server / TMG or have to add some Javascript / jQuery functioniality to replace the urls.
    As they reference to SharePoint external content, the Alternate Access Mapping translation would not affect these urls.
