IT Employment

General discussion

I am the IT at a hospital. We have a satelite clinic whose only connection at the present to the internet is through dial-up. I want to connect them so they have access to our server here at the hospital. If I got them a T1 access what would be the most secure way of connecting them to our server for access to programs etc?

yes and no.....

If it was a t1 connected via the public net, then no.

If it is a t1 that is connected via a point-to-point. That is, same carrier, does not go out over the public net. Then somewhat.

I say somewhat because although it is on the same carrier, it is not secured with anysort of encryption.

But by getting them t1 service, they will probably have a static IP/block issued. Then you can make a p-t-p vpn connection from their firewall to yours. If you want to get tricky, you can also put a static route on their router that will only let them get to your network and no place else.
