( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The notion of forcing (internal) users to submit via the Intranet server seems pretty sound, but the notion of letting employees work from outside is less so... even if you do VPN or something similar.

re your (IP) isn't spoofable is it??: If not today, wait a few seconds. I wouldn't want to bet against it being an easy do today. cf annonymiser, etc. which appear readily adaptable.

and re What if I want them to be able to do this from home and not on our network?: In the famous words of the (allegedly) prototypical New Yawker, "fergeddiboudit!" For one thing, one frequently high priority consideration for running an intranet is SPECIFICALLY that you don't want a user from outside your firewall playing inside your (proprietary) workspace -- to which I'd add "even if you THINK you know who it is."

On the other hand, your outside server (RH) uses a fairly sound encryption scheme to validate those with accounts; one would think you might be able to avoid posting a (generic meaning) database to validate those authorized to change content. But on the third or fourth or fifth hand, what is the PHB's level of risk tolerance?

UPDATE But, see Tank's (++) below!

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
