Must I use ADFS proxy to gain external access to CRM 2011.
I find nothing fancy in most of the important guides, which means I have to continue with the plain quest/ design option. Company.local is the name of the internal domain, while the external is company.com. Claim based goes hand in hand with crm.company.local.
My question is do I need to use ADFS proxy to gain external access to CRM 2011 while at the same time using IFD? Each time I attempt to include a relying part trust, the message “403 error” crops up. Furthermore, is it normal for the auth.company.com name to be the IP belonging to the ADFS Proxy.

Any relevant information to this problem will be appreciated.
