Alternate access mappings

  Asked By: Jody    Date: Mar 19    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 982

Couple of questions, so please bear with me.

First. WSS 3.0 WFE in a DMZ with the SQL2005 internal on the corporate lan.

Previous set up was WSS 3.0 with a sql 2000, not that I think that makes a
difference, but it worked in this configuration.

The new setup supports multiple domains, which has a new DC with 1 way trusts
set up to 5 domains. Authentication works, however;
(question 1) I don't get the AD info to fill in the userid when I add a new
user. It shows up as "domain\userid" but not AD info such as email, company,
What pulls that information, I know it comes from AD, but is there a specific
connection that "pulls" the information, maybe I've got it blocked.

I've tried to setup alternate access mappings for each site which will support
each domain. For example:

The default URL: http://sharepointserver.domainA.com:12345
New Internet URL: http://sharepoint.domainB.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://sharepoint.domainB.com

This is repeated for Each domain, but when I attempt to access via the internet
url, it doesn't respond, but will respond on:
http://sharepoint.domainB.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://sharepoint.domainB.com:12345.

Does a WFE have to be able to do a reverse dns lookup for the internet url? And
does it have to match the IP of the Host? Right now that would respond with
Public IP not the Nat'd IP of the WFE

Sorry if this is a bit confusing, but it's the little things that'll drive you

I know I could add IP's to the WFE and tie a site to an IP, but then I'll have
to use multiple Public IP's to match as my firewall won't NAT url's
