    Sharepoint 2007

    Evening all,

    I'm having a bit of a play with Sharepoint and I've hit a bit of a problem.

    Setup is Windows Server 2008, and I'm running Sharepoint Server 2007 with SP2. I've installed Sharepoint and on the server itself I can acces sit and make changes, create sites etc, but i'm struggling to access it from a standard desktop.

    Interestingly, although I don't know if this is connected or not, I can't remote desktop directly to the server either whether I try to do it via IP or by server name. I've checked the remote desktop settings and they all seem fine, but still nothing.

    Has any Sharepoint Guru's got any possible suggestions as to what might be causing these problems?

    I can answer more tomm, have you made a dns record? if you have a proxy have you made an exception in IE? what happens when you try and access what message?

    Hi,

    I've done nothing in DNS, and I have set up the exception (just for me) within IE based on the IP address of the server. Please see below for screenshots.

    Have you made a host header in iis?

    so host header 10.10.10.10:80 point to sharepointtest

    then in yourdomain.local in dhns put a A record for 10.10.10.10:80 to sharepointtest ?

    Think I'm making some progress with this now, thanks irsprint.

    Able to remote desktop to the server using its IP address, and I'm also now able to access my site via IE using the IP address again.

    Just added an A record to DNS, and we'll see what happens.

    Irsprint you are my hero.

    A record added, and I can now browse to my site and also remote desktop to the server exactly how I want to.

    Thanks again :-)

    I think Sharepoint just likes having hissy fits full stop :-)

    You've got me very intrigued by your last comment, are you in a Stockport School as well?

    Morning all,

    Still trying to get my head round sharepoint :-)

    I'm trying to set permissions on items held within particular lists so that staff members can add to the list and edit their own items but no-one elses. At the moment it seems that my only two options are to allow them read (which means that they can't add something new or edit items) or contribute (which allows them the ability to add, delete and edit everyone's items).

    Anyone got any idea how I might achieve this?

    On the list settings, you should also see the option to edit own items (not list permissions or site settings, but list settings - confused me the first time.), advanced settings, then in item-level permissions.

    (note that this is for lists - document libraries dont have this feature)

    Hey!

    I'm glad to see your having so much fun with SharePoint! It really is a fun service to be playing with hehe! *wait's for the sleepless nights!*

    Anyway, I was just wondering why you are using MOSS2007 and not SP2010

    James.
