A good plan for a secure network setup
Posted on 2011-03-02
I have a hotel, with Positouch System for the restaurant area which takes credit cards on about 6 terminals.
Plus a hotel network of computers which tie into a web-based reservation system. the web-based system allows for on-line bookings and payments. We have the server on premise, it ties into another server for local access to the database. The Possi system uses one Credit Card Processor, connecting by Internet ( with a fail-over dial-up). The hotel reservation system uses another provider - which is handled via the web.
I also maintain a wireless system for the guests.
I think I need a Netgear Router in bridge mode to connect to the Internet and link us via a switch for the hotel network (on a different sub net).
another NetGear router to connect the Possi system to - which in turn connects to the bridge.
I need to be able to access the Possi system from at least two or three hotel computers...I think I can do that with router settings.
I think I want a VPN to access an internal computer from florida and 30 miles away.
I need to have LofMeIn on the accountant's PC so he can log in for accounting.
I need the web server connected via a separate router - then to the bridge.
I need the wireless on its own sub net and connected to the hotel lan for interent service using its own DSL line (shared by one other computer).
does this sound right?
