Advice on Publishing SharePoint to Outside

Hello,

I am looking for some suggestions. I have successfully deployed SharePoint as our internal Intranet and things have been going well. Phase 2 of the project will be opening up this portal outside of the organization so that employees can gain access to information while on the road or at home without having to VPN in.

My question is if anyone has any advice on how to do this. I was thinking about putting in a TMG or UAG server since I have the licenses but I am not sure if this is the route to go since MS announced TMG EOL with no replacement. Did they announce EOL for UAG to? IF I did decide to go with TMG or UAG which one would be a better idea? I read a few things that state UAG is better for users gaining access to internal resources so I have a feeling that would work.

Also, I am thinking about putting in a new VPN solution to replace my Cisco IPSEC VPN since Cisco ended support for their VPN client. I know I could do that with TMG but can I with UAG?

Please let me know your thoughts.

Thanks,
-Mike

Hi,

UAG would be the best route, whilst TMG will work, it seems a waste of time now its been announced EOL.
We utilise UAG for this and many other products - its worth taking a good look at it.  It's fairly easy to use once you are used to it and there is a sharepoint application template for 2002, 07, 10 & 2013.  There are even quick setup guides for sharepoint publishing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIsuMgiBzYo

As far as VPN goes, you could utilise DirectAccess for connections or you have the SSL Network Tunneling (net connector) option.
