I need to Implement EP for internet and intranet users, in which for internet users I need to fetch the summary data of R/3 applications.
how shall we proceed with the implmentation of portal for internet users, pls suggest some blogs showing portal implementation for internet users.
To make available portal for both internal and external users, you've to setup a reverse proxy in DMZ. Your portal will reside in intranet and external (internet users) will access portal via reverseproxy.
For reverseproxy there are 3 main options.
- Apache as a ReverseProxy
- ReverseProxy with IIS and ISAPI Filter
- Using Web Dispatcher as reverse proxy.
Now look at the following diagram;
EXTERNAL USERS INTERNET
PORTAL SERVER INTRANET
Internal Users will access portal normally with/without SSL. External Users will access portal with/without SSL via RProxy.
This is how we setup and working well. We Used Apache as ReverseProxy on SuSe with SSL enabled.
But testing WebDispatcher on SuSe for load balancing.
