NT4server with two network cards (internet/lan) : not
Thu Oct 10 14:01:12 2002
As you run the expense of NT Server, you should consider Winroute Pro as it
is much more configurable.
You need to treat each network card separately with no filtering on the LAN
nic and concentrate on the net nic. Both nics on the server should have
static ip's with the best option being to map the pptp port to the LAN nic,
vpn into your network and then initiate a session to whom ever on the LAN.
Using VNC through a tunnel may effect performance but this can be offset by
a good distribution and a fat connection at both ends.
When configuring winroute, you should place as much if not more emphasis on
blocking outgoing packets through your net nic as a Trojan on one of your
workstations can easily initiate an outgoing connection which would bypass
Give it a shot and post a reply.
