Binding port 443 to single IP on network.
Posted on 2010-08-30
I am having an issue at my company where we are trying to connect to a payroll service that constantly disconnects us. I was speaking to the tech support guy and he asked if I have multiple Internet connections on my network (i do). He informed me that if our connections switch over while logged into their service, they automatically break the connection as they see it as a security issue. His suggestion was to bind all port 443 traffic to one of my IPs on my network so this does not happen.
My questions are as follows:
1. Is this a good suggestion?
2. Is this even possible? What would be the possbile pros/cons?
3. Should I just deal with it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
