access Access via PIX ?

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by barret bonden, Jul 27, 2008.

  1. Testing two methods of remote access to an MS Access backend; Terminal
    Server and VPN. So far VPN is ahead. Using Cisco Easy VPN client I get an IP
    off a PIX, then "net use" it along with it's path, and then open a front end
    in Access that's been set to use this path to the back end. So far, so good;
    tested with 3 machines simultaneously; two going through the PIX.

    It seems better than playing with Terminal Server and licensing; also it
    seems to work fine with XP Pro as the "server" ; ( I tested with Server 2003
    but then wondered why I was bothering) .



    Are there any "gotcha's" awaiting me ?

    There is inbound connections limit in Windows XP that could make
    problems...
