Hi All,

We are debating which one to Use is it Intranet or External facing Portal.

Requirement is.

1. Lots of documents needs to be maintained, serached so KM needs to be installed but no collaboration requirement.

2.As i know External facing Portal will not support WebDynpros, KM iviews apart from out of the box iViews, Business packages.There is some performance issue with KM iviews

Can any one tell me if i preffer External facing Portal

1. Can i use KM with TREX

2. I have seen a picture which says if a company employee logs in in LAN he will be directed to Stabdard Portal Frame but if Company Employee Logins in from Home (WAN) and other logins from internet they will be directed to Light framework page. In this context do we need to assign two desktop pages or if i assign Light framework page is fine. Please through more light on this.

3. In Case of External Facing Portal we need to set up Reverse Proxy what is the hard ware required.

4. Is there any Architecture difference in Intranet and External Facing Portal ( If you can provide diagrams will help)

5.As i know KM inturn has its own repository how can check this and do we need to size this if i am storing documents say in another 5-10 years, or can i use any other repository if so what are the avilable repsitories and configuration, sizing details.

6. Intranet portal can't be exposed to outside world what are the possible ways to expose intranet to web except EFP .

Thanks in Advance for your help

Currently we also are also implementing an external facing portall,

Yes we need to set up a reverse proxy amd for hardware requirement we have consulted networs team and they are looking after the issue

In case of architecture change, yes there are chanegs. Like u said correctly we have create a light framework page and a light desktop in addition to normal desktop or i would say you have to customize it according to your need. In my case i have implemented a hover dropdown on TLN so i had to code in light top level navigation PAR file and have to remove HTMLB.Then i added this light TLN PAR into the framework.

Well, i am not too sure about KM , but i know Webdynpro iviews are now supported in EFP because i am implementing the same.

Apart from EFP, you can think of using VPN.

If you need anymore info. then do post here on this thread.

Hi Ameya,

Thanks for quick replay,

what are the pros and cons in using VPN, is there any Architecture to be followed.
