External Access Documentation

  Asked By: Ezequiel    Date: Oct 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 913

Is anyone aware of a good resource or set of documentation that
illustrates how to programmatically access the resources within SPS from
an external site? Most of the documentation I have found assumes that
you will be building webparts and working from within the SPS framework.
Any assistance you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

The documentation  for this is pretty awful, but there are some examples in
the MS SDK & in www.sharepointcode.com . You can access  SPS from ASP or from
VB (com or exe) quite easily, although I think your implementation must have
SPS and whatever external  app. you are running [which will use the SPS
object module] on the same machine/box. We have tried running on separate
boxes and it just won't work - we keep getting 'access denied' errors. Prior
to this, we managed to probe all the security settings, check out docs, etc.
when the two were on the same box. I could be wrong about this last issue in
which case please let me know!
