Step1: Configure the SharePoint server

1. On the server running SharePoint Products and Technologies, open the SharePoint Central Administration tool.

2. In the SharePoint 2013 Central Administration tool or in the SharePoint 2010 Central Administration tool, under System Settings, click Configure alternate access mappings.

3. On the Alternate Access Mappings page, in the Alternate Access Mapping Collection list, click Change Alternate Access Mapping Collection, and then on the Select an Alternate Access Mapping Collection dialog box, select the application that you want to publish.

4. On the Alternate Access Mappings page, click Edit Public URLs.

5. On the Edit Public Zone URLs page, in a zone box that is not yet defined, such as the Internet zone, enter the URL of the same public host name that you entered in the Public host name box when you added the SharePoint web application to the Forefront UAG trunk (described in Configuring Forefront UAG settings). Make sure that the URL includes the protocol, according to the trunk type.

6. For example, if you are publishing an application via an HTTPS trunk that resides in the domain xman.com, and the application’s public host name that you entered in Forefront UAG is Portal, enter the following URL: https://Portal.xman.com.

7. When you have finished, click Save.

8. On the Alternate Access Mappings page, click Add Internal URLs, and then on the Add Internal URLs page, do the following:

9. In the URL protocol, host and port box, enter the URL that you assigned in the Farm host name box when you added the SharePoint web application to the Forefront UAG trunk (described in Configuring Forefront UAG settings). For example: http://PortalExternal.xman.com.

10. In the Zone list, click the same zone in which you defined the public host name (in step 5 of this procedure), and then click Save.

Step2: Create a New trunk

On the Web Servers page, do the following:

In the Addresses box, enter the internal host name of the server running SharePoint Products and Technologies. If your SharePoint server is load balanced, use the load-balanced URL instead of a server name. Make sure that you enter a fully qualified domain name.

In the Paths box, you can optionally define one or more paths on which the application resides, by double-clicking an empty line and entering a path. Note that the path must start with a slash.

In either the HTTP Port box or the HTTPS Port box, enter the port on which the SharePoint server is configured to listen.

In the Public host name box, enter a public host name of your choice for the SharePoint web application.

Select the Replace host header with the following check box, and in the Farm host name box, enter a URL of your choice that will be used to differentiate the internal host name of the application from its public host name. Make sure that the URL includes the domain in which the trunk resides (the domain of the trunk appears on the Web Servers tab, to the right of the Public host name box). For example, if the public host name of the application is HRPortal and the trunk resides in the domain xman.com, enter the following replacement host header: HRPortalExternal.xman.com.

On the Authentication page, do the following:

To allow rich client applications, such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel, to authenticate directly to the SharePoint application without authenticating to the portal, select the Allow rich clients to bypass trunk authentication check box.

To use Office Forms Based Authentication (MSOFBA), select the Use Office Forms Based Authentication for Office client applications check box.

Step4: Configure Mobile devices Access for SharePoint

When end users access a SharePoint 2010 site from a mobile device using the Office Mobile client, to allow the device to download documents from a SharePoint site, you must make the following URL set changes:

1. In the Forefront UAG Management console, open the Advanced Trunk Configuration dialog box, and click the URL Set tab.

2. In the URL list, scroll to InternalSite_Rule54, and in the Methods column, add the HEAD method.

3. In the URL list, scroll to SharePoint14AAM_Rule47, and in the Methods column, add the HEAD method.

4. On the Advanced Trunk Configuration dialog box, click OK, and then activate the configuration.

5. When end users open an Excel file on a SharePoint site from their mobile device, the file opens correctly. If they then go to a different SharePoint site, the first time they try to open an Excel file it may not open as expected; end users must click the file again to open it.
