We have an IBM Power 6 that we are not allowed to connect to the internet. It is on an internal LAN with a firewall. Also using the firewall we have an external LAN with servers that must connect to the internet, i.e. email.
Currently, we have a remote office that is using a local internet connection to VPN to a server that is on the external network. Then they use remote desktop to a PC with IBM i Access. Clearly, this is pretty clumsy.
We would like to come up with a better solution, short of having a dedicated secure connection. If it is not obvious, I have no networking experience, so be kind ;)
What options do we have? IBM i Access for the Web sounds promising, but won't we have to open the i up to the internet to use that?
I truly value and appreciate your advice. Thank you!
