How to Configure a Microsoft SharePoint Web Forward

  • Last updated on

When you create a Web Forward for SharePoint 2013 on the Barracuda SSL VPN, use the SharePoint 2013 Web Forward template. To get SharePoint working through a proxy, you must also add Alternate Access Mappings to tell SharePoint to expect requests that were made to other hosts (namely, the Barracuda SSL VPN).

Using SharePoint 2007 and 2010

  • When using SharePoint 2010, the end user must disable the Trusted Documents setting to allow the editing of documents on a SharePoint 2010 server using Office 2010.
  • When using SharePoint 2007, be aware that the SharePoint 2007 template only allows site navigation, limited editing of the SharePoint site, and the uploading and downloading of documents.

Step 1. Configure the SharePoint server

On the SharePoint server, add alternate access mappings. Then restart the IIS server. 

Step 1.1 Add alternate access mappings
  1. Go to the SharePoint 2013 Central Administration console (this might be set up on your SharePoint server:1317). If it is not available, log into the system that IIS is running on and go to Start > SharePoint 2013 Central Administration.
  2. On the Central Administration page, click Configure alternate access mappings in the System Settings section. 
  3. Click Edit Public URLs.
  4. From the Alternate Access Mapping Collection list, select SharePoint - 80
  5. Add the following entries:
    • Defaulthttp://your SharePoint server
    • Intranethttp://your fully qualified SharePoint server
    • Internethttp://your fully qualified Barracuda SSL VPN
    • Extranethttps://your fully qualified Barracuda SSL VPN

Step 1.2 Restart the IIS server
  1. Go to Start > Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager
  2. In the left pane, click SHAREPOINT.
  3. In the right pane under Manage Server, click Restart.

Step 2. Create the Web Forward for SharePoint

Configure the Web Forward with the information for the SharePoint server, and add policies for the users and groups who are allowed to use it.

  1. Log into the SSL VPN web interface.
  2. Int the upper right, verify that you have selected the correct user database.
  3. Go to the Manage System > RESOURCES > Web Forwards page.
  4. In the Create Web Forward section, configure these settings:
    • User Database – Select the database that the users reside in.
    • Name – Enter a name to help end users identify the Web Forward. For example, SharePoint.
    • Web Forward Category – Select the Portals check box, and then select SharePoint 2013.
    • Hostname – Enter the hostname or IP address of the server that you want to connect to.
    • Domain – Enter the domain that the SharePoint server belongs to.
  5. From the Available Policies list, add the policies that you want to apply to the Web Forward.
  6. To add the Web Forward to the default Resource Category, enable Add to My Favorites.
  7. Click Add.

The SharePoint 2013 Web Forward appears in the Web Forwards section.

Step 3. Launch the Web Forward

Add a resource category to the Web Forward to make it available to users on their My Resources page.  

  1. In the Web Forwards section, click Edit next to the Web Forward entry.
  2. In the Edit Web Forward window, scroll to the Resource Categories section, and add the available categories that you want to apply to the Web Forward.
  3. If you want the Web Forward to automatically launch whenever users log into the Barracuda SSL VPN, scroll to the Details section and enable Auto-Launch.
  4. Click Save.
