Our accounting department has contracted with Mosaic (http://www.mosaiccorp.com/
) to perform various document management tasks for processing invoices.
The main item that Mosaic needs to implement its app, Eclipse, which uploads the documents from our LAN to Mosaic's server, is a machine to install Eclipse and some space on a drive to store the documents scanned from the various offices. This is all set up.
My problem is deciding upon the best way to give the Mosaic people access to that local machine to run their app.
The Mosaic engineer said that they routinely use GoToMyPC to manage their app on their clients' machines. Though I believe Mosaic to be trustworthy and to not muck up my machine, I can't think of a way to keep them from looking around my network if we use GoToMyPC. My only other idea is to set up RDP for them, though that doesn't really keep them from peeking, either. The engineer said that the access is just for checking on the app periodically and that .
The local machine in question is a Dell PowerEdge T310. It is a member server running Server 2008 Standard SP2. There is nothing on it but an FAQ app that we don't use. In fact, this box pretty much just sits there. I partitioned off 100GB for the files and set up the folder structure. We are ready to move except for granting Mosaic access to the machine/network.
