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?

I hear you - that's why I liked the official Postgres admin tool too.

comment Snow Leopard Server doesn't seem to install in a virtual machine on VMWare Fusion 3.0
Yes Stephen, I am using the install disk that came with the server. I thought that was a full version, but I guess I was mistaken. Anyway you have answered my question. Do you think it might work if I run the VM on the Mini? I'll try it. Thanks.

comment Mac OS X Server: what's the difference between the server userIDs and locals userIDs? Are they distinct?
Brilliant thanks Chealion. Now what if one of the clients is a macbook and I take it off the network? Will it lose its Userid information so that I cannot log onto it anymore when off the network?

comment Accessing a PostgreSQL server running in a VMWare virtual machine on a mac
Thanks Nikore, but then if I do that although I can ping the VM now, the VM doesn't seem to be able to see external network (cannot visit websites for example). I think has to do with WIFI
