IP Port security

By ross_diamond ·
We have a Cisco Firewall with VPN capability, yet my boss's computer has a problem with the Cisco VPN client software. Accessing the VPN is not critical, yet he does want to be able to access our CRM application (Goldmine). Is there a way to setup Terminal Services as an application server and access it securely without a VPN connection? With Goldmine, you can also set up a remote site and synchronize with the main database remotely using IP port 5993. What is the best way to allow secure access via port 5993?

1. You may install Microsoft ISA server
2. You may install Citrix server.
3. You may get WebVPN software/appliance
99. You may fix your Cisco PIX VPN. :-)))

Cisco PIX is capable of doing a lot of things. If you do not want to do IPSec, you may do PPTP and configure your Windows. You may configure it to grant access to your boss's laptop based on his IP address, only to GoldMine server, and only to port 5993. You can do almost anything without buying extra servers/software/licenses. If you want to make any solution work, you have to spend some money and time - why not to spend it on the stuff you already have?

Good luck,
