    Sharepoint Learning Kit External Access

    I have setup SharePoint to work externally, which is all functioning correctly. I have setup the SharePoint Learning kit and when I click on My Assignments externally it tries to connect to the internal address, it doesn’t resolve it to the external URL

    Any help would be appreciated

    This is an old post but thought I would reply anyway in case some else has the same issue.

    Early version of SLK use the default Alternative Accessing Mapping set in Control Admin. If your default is the internal address it will try and connect to this. Heres a blog post on how to fix the issue

    Thanks for the update, I actually gave up on SLK because of this issue.

    We now use Moodle instead which works perfectly.

    Did this issue ever get fixed?

    I've done a work around by setting our default to the external address, but because when internal we point it to \\servername for integrated windows authentication, when they click the assignment link they have to login in again as it points to the external www.*****.sch.uk domain.

    yeah, you need to set up the alternative access mappings as per this Microsoft SharePoint Team Blog : What every SharePoint administrator needs to know about Alternate Access Mappings (Part 1 of 3)

    See a recent thread on the same issue Sharepoint - AAM issue
