sharepoint 2007 site external access RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on some code that I am writing on my dev site.  When you click a button, you are sent to a third party site, when you are done filling out a form, it kicks you back to my page.  This is done my referer.

    On my test site, I created a site called test so if I go to http://test, my site comes up.  This won't work for my code development because the third party site must kick back to my site.  Since http://test isn't on the web, it won't work.

    I set up a dyndns account so if you go to http://myhost.dyndns.org, the router points you to my vm.  If I go http://myhost.dyndns.org:5555, it goes to my central admin site.  If I go to http://myhost.dyndns.org, I get a random iis page, but not my sp site.


    How do I change my sp2007 site, so I can access it from that other url?

  • I know that it is supposed to use alternate access mappings, but I can't figure out how to do that.  I went Operations->alternate access mappings.  Clicked Edit public zone urls, In the extranet filed I typed http://redj.dyndns.org.  When I go to that url, I see a generic iis site.  It is viewing the correct machine though.  Is there anything else I need to do with iis or the hosts file?

  • Hi,

    I believe you have used the host header before extending the site. If it is done then you have to provide your application port no. in alternate access mapping.

    http://myhost.dyndns.org:Your Port no./

    This should work.

  • hello

    you need setup this domain name both in alternate access mapping and in IIS manager for your Sharepoint site. In IIS manager you need to set host header for this URL. If you use IIS6 It can be done in Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services (IIS) manager > properties of your site > Web Site tab > Advanced > Add host header. Select All unassigned port 80 and enter your URL http://myhost.dyndns.org. In IIS 7.0 it can be done in IIS Manager click on your site and select Bindings in the Actions category in the right part of the window

  • Hi,


    In your scenario, you should extend your web application and specify the Host Header box followed Create or extend a Web application (Office SharePoint Server)


    If you need to configure host header for site collections, please refer to:

    Let me know if you need further assistance.
