Yes I know & understand the security issues, but I didn't say that
the clients will be going over the internet, I just said trough a
the firewall is 1 of a few internal network firewalls that allow us to
control the flow of data that bit better on our network... All of the
networks are 'Trusted' as they are all part of our very large network...
The firewall in question is one of the firewalls that controls data across
from 1 campus to the other..
I hope that helps...
