WLAN connected to server over ethernet
Posted on 2004-11-13
I need to set up a small WLAN which needs to be connected to a linux server on a larger LAN. (security policy demands that the server is placed in the central server room)
The clients on the WLAN should only be allowed to access that particular server on the LAN, nothing else.
Also, I'd like to keep the configuration work on the WLAN clients as limited as possible.
Can anyone suggest a secure solution and a suitable (more or less affordable) access point?
What I've read about VPN seems to imply that the client pc's themselves need a VPN client configured and running, which is not desirable. I'd preferably keep it transparent for the clients, especially since they are simply not allowed to access anything but that machine.
