External Access to Sharepoint
We are in the process of setting up Sharepoint within our school, and were wondering how to go about allowing external access to the site.
Our network layout is as such: our LEA network is on a set IP range, but we opted out of sitting directly on their network so that we could keep our own IP range. Therefore, we have a gateway proxy server which sits on their network and NAT's over requests to our IP range as needed. Our Sharepoint server therefore, has a private IP address on our network and has no direct connection to the internet. Can we just set up forwarding on the proxy to point all Sharepoint traffic to the internal server address?
We also need to allow single sign-on access from Sharepoint to our Exchange server and user home areas. For this we have been advised to install an ISA server. Would an ISA server be ok to sit behind our current gateway proxy, or would we be better to sit it directly on the LEA network with 2 NIC's installed?
Alternatively, does anyone have their Sharepoint server installed with 2 NIC's to allow both internal and external access?
Sorry for all the questions, I just can't get my head around the infrastructure layout... :confused:
