  • Blog Post: Publishing SharePoint with Windows Server 2012 R2 Web Application Proxy

    A new toy I’ve played around with recently is this new web-application proxy (WAP) role in Windows Server 2012 R2. I thought I’d write a quick post about setting up SharePoint 2013 with it because reverse proxying SharePoint applications is a good practise for publicly accessible SharePoint sites, and...
  • Blog Post: Calling SQL Server from SharePoint Web-Part with Impersonation

Thus when SharePoint uses AppFabric, it opens a new TCP connection...

    SharePoint is often used to host public-facing websites and we can all agree it’s generally a bad idea to have general purpose SharePoint farm sitting on a publicly accessible interface directly. That’s where reverse-proxies come in rather handy; they’re designed to be the link between the scary outside...
