Remote access to one server only?

  silverous 18:46 16 Feb 2008


I may have a requirement to enable a supplier to access a server remotely. Once on that server, how do I prevent access to the other servers on my network as typically they can all access eachother.

You can map a network drive from the remote pc if it is just the hard drive of th server that your client needs to access. to prevent him accessing other servers, you can create permissions on active directory that allows him or blocks him from different servers. alternativey, you could configure your remote router's access lists to deny him access to certain ip addresses.

sorry, i meant configure the local router. the one that the servers are connected to.

You can an apply an access control list (ACL) if you are using an enterprise router.

If you haven't an enterprise router. You could set that server to a DMZ server and set your firewall rules to allow traffic for your clients ip address (only work if your client has a static ip address).

You can do this on a normal netgear DG****, failing this your only solution is what trist said.
