I have few blade servers running on the network and want to have better support from the server manufacture . I have to justify the security side of the allowing access to external party . their  going to use the  internet for remote support . I hope only the installed tools will communicate with that via internet ?

THERE ARE THREE WAYS WE SECURELY CONENCT TO SERVERS OVER THE INTERNET

1. Secure VPN
2. Windows RDP
3. Logmein

We suggest installing a hardware firewall in front of the network to ward off hacking attempts, land attacks and other hacking type activity.  We use a Sonicwall TZ210W firewall but other brands like Cisco, Watchguard, Juniper and others can provide a strong level of support.

Hope this helps!

Without knowing the make/model of the blades it's not possible to answer completely but the normal method of getting remote access to a complicated setup is to install a PC that has all the tools on and setup secure remote access to that. You then only have to worry about securing access from the Internet to that PC rather than the myriad of often proprietary protocols the manufacturer uses to manage the infrastructure. The manufacturer may have their own intermediate software that should be installed on the PC, for example HP insight remote support.
