Extranet deployment failure

  Asked By: Bhavika    Date: Aug 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 962

We are faced with a certain problem during the
deployment of our Sharepoint portal server
implementation over the Extranet. Mentioned below is
the procedure that was followed for the installation.
Could you please suggest a mechanism to solve this

1) All the steps as mentioned in the White paper
for deploying Sharepoint on an Extranet were followed.

2)We used the extranet deployment tool to set up the
extranet web site

3)The site works fine when the SPS server is directly
over the internet.(without the firewall). When i place
the SPS server behind the firewall i get the following

a) When the URL is mentioned it first asks for the
firewall authentication account.

b) Once authenticated against the firewall, it asks
for the domain authentication account, for the domain
in which the server resides

c) The authentication fails at this stage and it gives
the following error

HTTP 403 Forbidden

Proxy error

4) The site being accessed over the internet uses
the Basic authentication mechanism.

Could you please provide us a solution for this

Did you add to rules to your firewall  allowing traffic to pass through to
the website?
