I recall having a dialog with OAM where there was a mention of data being encrypted during transfer.

I am working on a seperation model the data file is hosted by the server, the GUI is on the client machine. If i setup my GUI file to try a local IP then a static WAN IP for the data file is it safe. (trys one then the other).

My question is if i simply open up a port for access to my roaming user is the machine and data transfer safe?

Do i need to do this by VPN or is the seperation model via the internet secure?

Any thoughts or advice?

best

Sandra,

OAM = Old Advanced Man aka Steven Blackwell FM security and server expert - writes a lot of white papers and hangs out a lot around here.

Stuart,

Yeah ensure that SSL is selected as Sandra says, also ensure that you're not broadcasting the fact that your server or specific databases exist (require the user to have to login to see available db's)... but you're probably aware of that anyway. Finally make sure that you have adequate security in place on your server (i.e. a decent Firewall).

Cheers.
