Making sharepoint external friendly
I have a basic knowledge of sharepoint in that I have picked things up as I have hit problems. The whole site has had not really any customization other than title changes and icon changes. It is currently running great internally, and is published externalyl through ISA which works okay.
But what I want to do now is publish the site with anonymous access enabled. So that when people hit the URL they see the front page without a log in. I went into CA and authentication providers for the site and enabled anonymous access. This works okay in that it lets people see the site externally okay, but it also does that same internally so that when anyone opens up the intranet they have to log in. Where as without anonymous access they are logged in automatically. Is there anyway to fix this?

what address is that through - going straight to the server name internally should auto authenticate - whereas going to the external address will require a login.
Have you set up the Alternate Access Mappings for each address?

You could extend the web application, that'll let you use two different sets of authentication. One for internal, one for external.

internal is http://portal
extetrnal is http://sp.domain.co.uk
both have AAM set up
Internal users who go to http://portal no longer authenticate when anonymous access if turned on.

So internal users go to one website, external to another? But they are actually just the same site?
