How do i verify the IP obtained from the Internet Domain lookup is correct?
Posted on 2008-06-15
i apolgize as i can not give out the actual company public names & IPs, especially if they are trying to secure their environment in some way that i am not aware of. Sorry, but where security comes into play, so does the Sabanes-Oxley requirements.
My main question is this:
If i Dig or nslookup the company public FQDN - ex. connect.MS-inc.com, i get their public ex. IP: 126.96.36.199
Now from my home, i remote into one of the non-company satelite locations who run this conpany's app -
Shouldn't i be able to open this public IP & port 443 thru the firewall, then connect to the company to upload & download with them as was done before the firewall was added?
