Setting up MSDynamics 2013 IFD setup
Posted on 2014-04-14
i'm currently looking at setting up remote access to our recently upgraded MSDynamics CRM platorm, we have upgraded from 2011 to 2013.
All of our internal users have access and we have the Dynamics servers sat on the internal network which is protected by the company firewall.
My question is this. I want to implement Internet Facing Deployment using Claims Based Authentication to verify credentiials of external users. We also have a Domain Controller in our DMZ with ADFS on it and a un-used web server in the DMZ.
I need to know if I can setup IFD on the DC and Web Server in the DMZ, then have them point to the internal Dynamics Application?
It seems that the preference or recommendation is for the IFD to be configured with external users connection directly to the IIS service on the internal Dynamics servers. I'm not keep on this direct connection and would like to know the best solution.
