Making MySites available over the internet

  Asked By: Urjita    Date: Feb 04    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1240

Even though our main web app is available over the internet, the my site link
still shows the servername:port number.

I have tried several things and it doesn't seem to be working.

Can anyone help me or tell me the steps necessary to make the my sites also
available over the internet?

If you want to use the MySites as is, you just need to open up the requisite
port on your firewall.

Otherwise you'll have to mess with the application in CA and change the URL
(or extend it with a new one). You'll probably want to use a host header
unless you have an extra IP address to use for the MySite application.

The issue is that the "my site" link still shows  machine name and port  number
instead of AAM url..
Why would that be?

Have you tried the "Edit Public URLs" option from Alternate Access Mappings?

For which zone?????????????????????????

Answer #5    Answered By: Shannon Fleming     Answered On: Feb 04

Default, Internet, and Extranet should be enough.

The default zone contains the machine name and port  number.
When I change it, I get a message that I cannot change it..must specify default
zone url..

Oh yeah. When I did this, I ran up against that problem; the workaround was
something screwy like adding the External and Internet URLs, saving, and
then going back and changing the Default.

You'll still need to include the port  number (and open the corresponding
port in the URL), but you should be able to use an external URL.

Unfortunately, Step #1 is to make sure you built the MySites host on port  80 or
443. Otherwise you would need to open the custom port number  in the firewall.
