Need suggestion for this approach
Posted on 2003-12-03
Need some advice and suggestions on the approach to this scenario.
I have a Domino application which is residing in our network (i.e. within the firewall) This application requires feedback responses from several users. These users mostly will be notes users. But there may be some users who are external. For these external users we have decided to have a web portion where they have to supply a token before giving their feedback (as they don't have any login ). So anonymous access is given to create a feedback document but only after supplying a token by the user. Now in order for these external users to access this URL, the nsf should reside in the external server. But since the application is 90% internal , we would not like to put the entire app in external server as the details are also confidential.
The approach suggested by me was:
Have a replica copy of the nsf in the external server and do a selective replica of the external server with the internal, so that the documents submitted there, are pushed back to the internal server.
Is this the best way and are there any glitches in this approach. Are there are any alternative suggestions ?
