In our current environment we have a single (ADSL) fixed IP address connecting our network to the internet. We use this for accessing our exchange webmail, hosted on Windows SBS 2003. Our sharepoint server exists on another machine.
I would like to open our sharepoint instance to staff who work offsite. This obviously uses the same port as Exchange and our other public facing web applications.
- Can I configure things so the sharepoint site is available via the public interface and how!)?
- Is this a sensible way to do things?
- Is this a possible DNS fix?
I don't want to set the request on a non-standard port, but if this is the best way to do things, I will do it. It is also a temporary fix until we get our second connection up and running properly (with 6 fixed IP addresses).
