Making an ECM (OpenText Content Server 10) available to external parties over the internet
Posted on 2014-03-17
We are running OpenText Content Server 10 in our company. Currently our internal users access via a web interface or with a desktop client. We have a need to give access to a couple outside parties for collaboration. I am trying to find a secure solution to this but am banging my head against the wall.....Here's what I was thinking....Anyone have any suggestions? advice?
- Create a NAT policy on my firewall (SonicWall NSA3500) from one of our public IP to the internal IP of the server.
- Purchase a trusted cert and install on the server(IIS)
- Create local(app) accounts for these people in CS10 with limited access to ONLY the folders they need.
- If these folks are all connecting from just a few IP addresses, I could also limit access based on IP addresses.
Good idea? Bad idea?? We are trying to make this as easy as possible for the outside parties, so the executives really don't want to have to have them install a VPN client....
