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:

  1. Add the login URL from the Juniper appliance to the alternate acces mapping from the SharePoint web application.
  2. Add the login URL from the Juniper appliance to the trusted sites in the Browser.
  3. Add the SharePoint URL to the trusted sites in the Browser.
