Do you setup web application for internal and external access
  v2.0 Posted at 25/05/2016 4:46 PM by William Yin
​​- default zone should be over http, this is so search can access it over non-secure connection
- default zone should not be accessible outside of internal network
- extend the web application to an internet zone, this should be https to provide secure connection

- this section should be extended with strategy to work with reverse proxy.

Reverse proxy handle https connection to client, and connects to SharePoint via http to reduce https overhead on SharePoint

SharePoint also needs to support https for internal traffic, if I click on a link to HTTPS it should work internally

For this scenario to work, web application needs to be extended 2 to 3 different zone

                 Default (http for internal and search)

                 Internet (http for reverse proxy)

                 Intranet (https for internal https link)​
