OFFICE MEMO Lotus Notes Servers Date: 7/30/97
This question is to anyone who can shed some light on the positioning of lotus notes servers and the firewall. We are planning to install a notes server located both on the outside of the firewall and on the inside. We have vendors that need to post to the server from the internet. After they dump their data to this server it is then retrieved by the inside notes server. At first I was told this was a 'pull' technology from the inside server, now I am being told it is a 'push' from the outside...is this not a security hazzard. What if a 'hacked' applet or other virus makes it way through the f/w. I will be using a pass thru proxy that CyberGuard provides, but I don't think this is sufficient protection. Where should the servers be located? Any comments or help is greatly appreciated...
