Can I allow my exclusive home windows web server accessibility the net via a front end (public) web server?
I have an exclusive gigabit LAN at an organizing firm. It has actually 3 web servers attached in the LAN : 2 public internet servers (with public IP's) and also one exclusive data source web server with an exclusive IP.
To access the exclusive DB web server, I remote desktop computer to an internet server, after that I RD a 2nd time right into the exclusive web server.
Inquiry : exists any kind of means i can make the data source web server get accessibility to the net (ie. the very same gateway IP as the front end web servers?) Do all i require to do is add the gateway to the data source web server, while leaving that data source IP as an exclusive ip address?
You would possibly require to arrangement net link sharing (also known as impersonating/ rub) on among the web servers with a public address. You state remote desktop computer so I am thinking you are running windows. For 2003 see this, for 2008 see this.
I 'd seriously take into consideration decreasing in a center - ground/DMZ web server and also network in between the 'red - side'/ public web servers and also your 'environment-friendly - side'/ safe and secure web server. That will certainly permit you to effectively firewall each area and also dramatically lower your security threat. Certainly you can constantly simply continue doing what you are doing currently if it is not that large a bargain.
Could you give a layout? If both internet servers have public IPs, and also the data source web server has an exclusive IP, that would indicate that the data source web server gets on a various subnet to the various other 2, which subsequently indicates that there is a router in between them. Conversely, both internet servers might have numerous network cards ; one for the 'public' side and also one for the 'exclusive' side.
Concerning your inquiry, if all you require is outgoing internet accessibility for surfing, it might be feasible to install an internet proxy (as an example Squid) on among your public equipments, and also set up the exclusive equipment is proxy setups as necessary.
