This is in your alternative access mapping in your central admin.
Could anyone tell me how I change the default URL settings within sharepoint?
when you go to our external IP address portal e.g. portal.school.lea.sch.uk it asks for the username and password as normal however once entered it tries to go to our internal URL address schoolnameportal which of course brings up a 500 internal server error.
Any ideas guys I can give you the real address if needs be?

Right it's now not asking for authentication and bringing up 401 error? Any thought on this I can PM you the address to try if you want?
restart IIS - and then restart teh server if it still isn't working
It seems to be only doing this from and external web browser. Giving the following:
You are not authorized to view this page
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied because your Web browser is sending a WWW-Authenticate header field that the Web server is not configured to accept.
Please try the following:
* Contact the Web site administrator if you believe you should be able to view this directory or page.
* Click the Refresh button to try again with different credentials.
HTTP Error 401.2 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to server configuration.
Internet Information Services (IIS)
Technical Information (for support personnel)
* Go to Microsoft Product Support Services and perform a title search for the words HTTP and 401.
* Open IIS Help, which is accessible in IIS Manager (inetmgr), and search for topics titled About Security, Authentication, and About Custom Error Messages.
Doesn't have the problem internally though, through either Firefox or IE?
Looks like the error is caused because it's using integrated authentication. How would I setup the external URL to work via 443?
Actually how would I setup SSL internally and externally as I'm using Basic Authentication and SSL to provide the login.
i recently went for a hosted wss v3 solution
and im very happy
i take back everything i said about v1 and v2
Wesley - have you got ISA?
Yep I think I setup the web listener right i've added the certs now but still can't get anywhere.
I hate describing ISA just one of those ones I can do but not describe.
The listener should have the right certificate with the same IP address as the URL of your external DNS name for you MOSS.
Publish your MOSS using the wizard for sharepoint down the right hand side of the rules page.
Ensure that the isa server can see the internal address of the MOSS site via IE
Make sure the listener send the authenication to the MOSS server - its a tick box.
Does this help?

Erm not sure about "Make sure the listener send the authenication to the MOSS server - its a tick box." Can't seem to find it?
wesley - if i get time over the weekend - i'll try and put together a full document including screenshots. As I said - find it hard to explain ISA - don't know why!
Okay so the price I quoted earlier in this thread doesn't includes CALS.
Can anyone shed come light on how much they are as I don't fancy spending ages on learning this stuff if its going to be £10 per cal.
Its on a schools agreement so the £215 not too bad but we have 250 machines so my ickle budget won;t stretch too far.
We got it for just under £200 and £6 per CAL IIRC
