Help needed Getting my HAP setup to the outside world
I have hit the limit of my knowledge of IIS (little to no knowledge for a fact). I have HAP setup on Windows web server 2008 R2 (server is called HOMEACCESS) using https with a self certificate and all works fine, home directory and mapped drives are displaying fine etc. When I log onto the site using address https://homeaccess/HAP/login.aspx it says the 'SSL certificate is invalid and meant to another site' but I can ignore it and carry on, the only place I found in IIS to add a SSL cert was to right click on the servers name in IIS and add it to there, my HAP application is inside a subfolder of 'Default website' in IIS, is that correct?
I have given the server with HAP installed a static internal IP address 10.*.*.2 and have got SWGFL to assign that address an external static IP address and open port 443, this is all done now. I have applied to https://www.startssl.com/ but waiting for them to get back to me. I have setup a subdomain of our school website (www.*school name*.org.uk) called 'HAP.*school name*.org.uk' and got that subdomain to point to my fixed external IP address of my HAP server that SWGFL setup (nslookup confirms this).
My main question is how to I get my internal server to talk to the outside world via my external address, so when I am in the outside world all I need to type is https://hap.*school name*.org.uk to login? I have searched but I can not find the steps needed for this to happen. One section said to add the external IP address to the bindings of the site, I have tried but I can only add bindings to the default website not to my hap folder and also I can not seem to enter an IP address to bind anyway, I must be missing something simple.
I hope I have provided enough information for anyone to help me. Please make any explanation or instructions very simple as I have never got this far with setting up HAP and have very little knowledge of IIS etc
P.S this is all a result of Merlin shutting down soon so that teachers can access all their work at home.
