SSL VPN for accessing PHPBB on LAN - Advice on best opensource Solution
Posted on 2008-11-17
I have Phpbb running on a server on a Lan.
I would like to be able to grant access to PHPBB but I do not want to make the forum accessible/visible in any way online.
I was wondering if installing openvpn in vmware would help me in acheiving an SSL VPN which would direct users to port 80 of the local ip address of the server which runs phpbb thru the ssl vpn tunnel. Any thoughts?
Are there any other solutions (opensource) which could help me acheive the above?
As to the SSL certificates, what certificate should be used in this scenario and where is it suggested to obtain the certificates from?
Thank you for your time.
