Two Companys one network best solution..

By deerek11 ·
Hello all, I am trying to think of the best way to go at this issue I am having we have two companies in this one location and we only have one T1 connection coming inside of the building with two companies that do business together meaning the other company need to access resouces on my servers but I need to find a way to secure our domain. This is how we have it set up now we have our company on a domain but the other company is in a work group on our same subnet .. also the other company has two mac's , what would be the easiest solution to ensure that our domain is sercure.... I have stong input in what the other company does meaning joining our domain creating them a child domain or what ever the case so that is not a issue but I would prefer not to add them to our domain possibley a child domain or another subnet not sure what would work best any suggestions?? if you need more iformation let me know.....

What resources, besides the T1 Data, does the other company need to access??

Put them on seperate subnets, and put in place routers to get you both out to the T1. if they need access to resources, put a router inbetween you and only allow access through certain ports that you can configure the resources they need to work through. Get them to buy their own server that can supply them with the resources they need.

The resources the other company needs are on our servers shared folders for data that they work with.

Solution Remote Access for users that are not in the domain. They are given remote access rights to access resources in the domain.

One of the other answerers mentioned a router and that would be a way to go to create 2 networks.

Hi How you design depends on Relationship between two companies. trust they have and the functionalities they depend on each other.

Use VLAN's with sub-netting to separate network. Put both into different domain and establish two way trusts between two domains.

If one is a subsidiary or part of other company your could create child domains.


rgds,
