I'm assisting a non-profit with their website. They recently replaced their firewall/modem, which I installed. I'd thought I had set everything up correctly but there is one issue that I can't nail down.
Their website is accessible internally and externally. They have a document database, linked on the website, which is meant to only be accessible internally. Currently the database is only accessible if you are on the same subnet as the server. We need the database to be accessible to all internal IPs.
I'm thinking we need a static DNS entry or PTR record on the firewall, but I'm not sure what to point it to. I have the server IP address. The link to the database is www.website.org/newspapers
. I have some suspicion that the DNS entry may be archive.website.org but I'm not certain. I don't have access to the old firewall. Do you have any thoughts on how I might nail this down?
