"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

yeah i would do firewall rules
lock it down so that incoming http(s) requests are allowed in only from the IP address(es) of the remote location

Thanks,  I think the remote locations sites are on home connections and their ip's could likely change.  Are there other options?
