Pointing a IIS server to another IIS server hosting WSS team sites.

Pointing a IIS server to another IIS server hosting WSS team sites.

Post by Admin Istr » Sat, 11 Sep 2004 02:01:05


Here is my scenario:

www.server1.com is on the Internet and server2 is behind the firewall (on
the same network as your internet server)

I want people from the outside to be able to type www.server1.com/teamsite
and hit the WSS team site (teamsite) on server2 (i.e. \\server2\teamsite).

Is this done by redirect or share? How do you do either of these? I can
not seem to get a redirect to work and I have no clue what to share on
server2 (directory or files for that teamsite) for server1 to point to.

Thanks.

Install WSS on server1, create a site with the public-facing URL, and
"extend and map to an existing content database" to map it to the existing
site. Check the Admin guide for "Extranet" for more details on this and
other implementation approaches.

This is particularly relevant

Learn how to deploy Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services to allow two
virtual servers to host the same content. This deployment scenario also
outlines key concepts you'll need if you are setting up an intranet/extranet
configuration.

This is EXACTLY what I'm trying to do.
Did you ever get an answer on this??
Other than re-installing your server.
