Virtual network inside 1 server
Posted on 2012-04-12
Im trying to figure out the best way to secure access to a particular website, which is only required to be accessed by a few individuals.
My idea at the moment, is to create a VPN server, where the users can connect and get onto the site by loading their own web software up and connecting, however Im not sure how I can setup a network inside my server.
Is it possible to setup a virtual network inside my server (eg 192.168.1.1-254), so when a user connects, I can assign them an IP address (eg 192.168.1.200-210), and have my apache listening to other ports (eg 192.168.1.100-110).
My issue is I have a stand-alone server, which I want to use as my VPN server, and apache server, so users can connect via secure VPN and then see the web site inside. I dont have any more IPs apart from its external IP address (which currently is serving all the sites, but not securly).
Any ideas, even if Im going along the right path here of doing this?
