Adding users (in DMZ behind firewall)

  Asked By: Colt    Date: Feb 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1951

Our prod SharePoint install has rather limited connectivity due to its
network location (isolation), and we think we are having problems due
to this isolation.

What connectivity is needed to add users by domain\username to a
SPS/WSS? If SharePoint can connect to LDAP (port 389), is that enough?

We only have ports 80 and 443 open to intranet, and we are about to
have 389 closed on us. We wonder if we won't be able to add users
after they close it.

Sounds like you will not only not be able to add users  but SPS will not be able
to talk to Domain Controllers for authentication.

You may want to configure IPSEC rules to require IPSEC tunnel for LDAP and
authentication traffic between Web Front End servers and Domain Controllers.
This would decrease the number of ports required to be open and securely control
access to the domain controllers.
