    Intranet and Internet Security for ASP


    Hi all,

    I am currently working for a client that wants to be able to
    set up a web page that can be accessed from within a corporate intranet
    and from the Internet simultaneously. From outside a firewall. As well, this
    page will be updating a database within the firewall.

    Now, this is my assessment of the situation and the requirements:

    In order to be able to do this, I need to have a webserver set up outside
    the firewall that can log into the firewall, and then access the database.
    Using ADO.

    How exactly am I supposed to do this? Oh, and within a month's time. With
    ASP.

    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Ian Hossie

    I would need to know your network setup to be sure, but there are many questions
    that arise. It is doughtful that a network admin would allow a path to the
    internal network. They are very secure in the firewall setup.

    The best choice would be a web server with I external IP and 1 internal IP.
    This requires two nic cards. The internal will have access to the internal
    database. The external will be the internets web access. This will allow
    for little risk if setup correctly. Since the server has two nics the server
    will be able to cross to the internal machine. The internal nic should be
    set up to blook all trafic that is not internal.

    This is only one way. Discuss it with the network admin to figure out the
    network layout.

    The site should be password protected.

    Hope this is helpful.

    To put it mildly. The dba I work with suggested that it's a little like
    asking the guards if it's okay to build a little bridge across the moat.
    And drill a tiny little hole in the castle wall.

    Thanks, this does help to some extent. At least in the sense that I have
    another option I can present to my manager.

    I was also thinking of setting up something to use email for data updates,
    but that's something different.

    Thanks,
