comment How to use services secured by our gateway IP from clients outside our network?
@RikSchneider Thanks for that info, to be specific, it's more the administrative/policy/security/hardware resources - as the remote users are not members of our organization, so names, contact info, etc. would be unmanageable inside our organization. Further, if I experimented with this, I might want to host the box outside our firewall/DMZ - as there would be no sensitive info on that web app - it would only accept requests from App1 and re-route to App2..N sites. Does that make sense? (oh, but that defeats the source IP feature doesn't it?...)

@Slartibarfast wouldn't all users (inside and out) first visit App1 directly, and then have all URLs to App2..Z point to the reverse proxy - where the reverse proxy forwards bonafide request from App1 authenticated users om to App2..N ? Above you say all users start at the reverse proxy which doesn't seem right.

@CIA - do you mean if we have a Windows Domain (as in Domain controller)? Can you give me an example of "federated authentication" - it sound complicated.

comment How do I get started learning how to host my own VPS?
I just checked out Linode, and I found the documentation well organized, plain language, easy to learn from there, and basic plan price reasonable. I am using this to learn linux admin, without necessarily jumping into the deep end with the sharks and awful control panels.
