Intranet Access

By Frank K ·
I have my main server sitting behind a proxy server. My webserver sits on the outside and uses pw authentication to access the intranet which resides in the same place

How do I restrict a user, let's say joeuser, from accessing the intranet from outside the plant...in other words, joeuser is able to access the intranet from inside our building but if they would try from home, they would not get through.

Two possiblities:

0) Create your own user database and set values in the database to allow access from internet or intranet. You can check where the user is comming from based on his IP address.

1) (this solution is better, but i've never done it). I have seen some 3rd party COM objects that allow you interact with the NT user database (can't remember where); idealy you could check his IP address, then read from the NT database to see if he is a member of the "InternetAccess" group, or the "IntranetAccess" group.

In the proxy server you can put the restiction, allow only the ipaddress of inside the plant (ie) if you know the range of ip address in the local plant/building were the employee can access, then give those ipadresss only, so that the user will be allowed to access the webserver. or will be rejected.
