comment Expose a mongodb streaming data server that's behind a firewall, to the internet
Will the OpenVPN solution over UDP or IPSEC require any ports to be forwarded?

No ports in the "outer ring" firewall are forwardable, therefore the web server near the mongodb instance will not work either. However I like the idea of a "push" system, where I'll have the external server visible internally, and push to it on a regular basis. I think that's the only way forward.

Nope - we use a high-availability-guarantee service provider who puts a second firewall around each customer that they control; they use this as a business opportunity by making DMZ access payable. That's just unfortunately the exogenous situation I am having to deal with, and I don't want to pay.

Yes that's the problem. I don't have any open incoming ports. I need a solution that breaks out of the firewall from inside the firm. Fixed external IP only. No pre-determined IP/port forwarded path in.

So I'd be ssh-ing out of the office to an external fixed IP address, right? The external server does not need to have direct IP access to the internal server? It's all tunnelled over what? HTTP? btw I'm not stealing data, it's just our service provider wants to charge a grand a month for a rented server in their DMZ which I don't want to pay. I am assuming that suggested SSH streaming would not have an impact on internal net security as the firewall would still be fully operational?
