    Is it possible to run administrative side of the Sitefinity behind firewall and the public side (published pages) in front of the firewall (internet)?  What I am trying to say is, to run the Sitefinity behind firewall with all administrative functionalities available to internal users and make published pages available on the company's public web server available on the internet?

    Thanks,
    Zia

    Hello Zia,

    You can have two Sitefinity installations
     
    - one for your intranet and this installation will be behind the firewall.
    - the second installation will be used on the front end

    Both installations should be the same version of Sitefinity and they have to use one single database. In this case when you make some changes in the intranet website they will be visible on the public website.

    Your firewall will control the network traffic that will come to the intranet website.

    Do I not have to have two licenses To have two Sitefinity installations?  I was hoping to be able to publish web pages from the administrative server to the public non-Sitefinity web server of the company.  This way, I can just have a copy of Sitefinity controllers and web pages in the non-Sitefinity server.

    Thanks,
    Zia

    Hello Zia,

    If the rwebsites will be the same you can contact our sales department and ask them for any options to use "domain alias", so you will not need two licenses.

    You cannot use Sitefinity's controls and RadControls that comes with Sitefinity installation in another application, because you will get a trial message. If you do not want to use two installations you have to fetch Sitefinity's data through a web service and show it on your public website with a custom control.

    All the best,
