We are currently using Winframe by Citrix to give remote users access to
applications at our datacenter. Access to the Winframe box is through the
IBM Global Network (IGN). IGN is a subscribers only network. It is not as
open as the Internet but by no means do we have control over who is on it.
We currently have a firewall in front of the Winframe box but there is a
noticable delay in keystrokes when going through the firewall (TIS Toolkit
on a Linux box). We have performed some tests where for short periods of
time the Winframe box was connected directly to the IGN and the keystroke
delays went away.
Is Winframe safe to put directly on the untrusted network? We are worried
about unauthorized people getting through to the trusted side as well as
denial of service attacks where people try to crash Winframe.
