SharePoint rewrite issue opening office doc Juniper VPN
I experience a rewriting problem with an Juniper VPN Appliance (SA-2500) and a SharePoint website. When I try to access a SharePoint (2007 & 2010) site after connection with the Juniper VPN, the SharePoint site is displayed fine. But, if I try to open an office document stored in a SharePoint document library the document opens and displays the Juniper sign- in page instead of the document.
After searching the Juniper site I found different solution and found out that this is a known issue. A combination of two solutions solved for me this issue:
- Add the login URL from the Juniper appliance to the alternate acces mapping from the SharePoint web application.
- Add the login URL from the Juniper appliance to the trusted sites in the Browser.
- Add the SharePoint URL to the trusted sites in the Browser.
