OrclBox_PortsAdmin

If i have an oracle 11g atabase running on windwos 2008 server box and another running on RHEL box, and i need to connect remotely to the boxes what ports and protocols do you need?

Is it SSH (22) and TELNET (23) for unix

and RDP (3389) for windows?

With VPN you do not connect to a 'computer'.  You connect to a network.

I'm suggeting you can connect to the same network your desk computer is on.  then it would be a just like you were at your desk (or think of it as sitting in the cube next to your desk).  You would have access to all servers/systems that your desk computer has.

What is this suppose to show as it pertains to this question?

if you wand remote login to linux then use ssh (on port 22 by default)

This depends on how you plan on administering the box.  I would not suggest straight telnet because of the security holes.

You will need some secure protocol.  SSH is one.  For Windows I'm not sure RDP will be allowed for the same security reasons.

You can use RDP but need to have it properly secured.

I would suggest VPN for all connections, Windows/Linux.

even if you use VPN you log in into VPN server and you have to allow all these ports for the client.

unless they open up everything for VPN cliients.

Depends on what segment you VPN into.

It is also better to open ports like 22 internally.  Most networks will never open that one up externally.

Same for RDP.  Internal might be OK.

yes, i mean they will have to be requested OPEN after you VPN into network.

i think nornally there is a firewall between vpn server and database server and they have to open up these requested porsts.

Again, it depends on the segment you VPN in to but yes, typically you have 'admin' access from some segment of the network.  For example, your desk.  If you have it from your desk and can VPN into the same network segment then you should not need any additional ports opened.

I tried that a couple of times but i gave up due to slowiness of operation. Not sure if it is netowrk or VPN or what but even i just run outlook it takes 3-5 minutes for it to show up.
