I currently have an on-prem sharepoint 2007 setup which authenticates users against AD. So an end user, on the company wifi or VPN, in the browser types in 'http://sharepoint'
and they are taken to our sharepoint site. I am wanting to upgrade to Office 365 and use its sharepoint features. I want to know a few things:
1. What is a typical Office365 setup if the company wants to use just the sharepoint feature?
i.e. do you just type in 'companyname.sharepoint.co
m' and it takes you to microsoft's login page where you type in your email address/AD credentials to authenticate? I want this to be accessible from anywhere (i.e without having to be on company intranet or needing VPN)
2. If i do want this setup in the cloud, what are the requirements? (i.e. do i need public facing urls? proxies? adfs? etc)
