URL Mapping to share point portal server

  Asked By: Tessa    Date: Mar 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2199

I have the following scenario:

My url for Share Point Portal Server is:

http://machinename:XXXX <http://machinename:XXXX/>

where 'XXXX' is a port number.

Now we plan to assign it a URL (we already have a real ip assigned to it) so
that it can be accessed via the Internet, but the operations dept. has sent
me the following problem i.e.:

"URL redirection on port other then 80 is not possible through DNS. I will
appreciate if you can redirect all the port 80's traffic towards port XXXX"

Now we have already some sites running of port 80 and I don't want to mix up
our portal resources with those sites... can anyone provide me any help on
how I can get a work around. I believe I can set the "HOST HEADERS" option
available via IIS 6 .but will there be any issues arising on the sharepoint
portal as a result of it ? and is there any other way of achieving it ?

Host headers  can be used, as long as you are not doing SSL or using fixed IP
addresses (e.g. you must use "(All Unassigned)" in the IIS admin config. If you
can wait for SP2, several of these limitations are supposed to be handled...
