Due to popular request we have now setup VPN access to the internal network. We have decided to use OpenVPN with key based authentication to help assure high levels of security and consistent implementation. This VPN should help users to increase the overall security of their systems by not allowing SSH, RDP, etc. over the public Internet and giving additional options for secure connectivity to the system. This access can be granted with a simple request to email@example.com. Full directions for setting up the VPN client are available in a knowledgebase article: https://support.steadfast.net/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&... Now, do not simply leave your internal network connections wide open either, anyone on our network or using the VPN will still be able to reach your system over the internal network IP, so still follow proper security guidelines for passwords, firewalls, etc. One advantage is though that if you do note any abusive behavior over the internal network, contact our support department immediately and we can very promptly resolve the issue at it's source. Note: We will soon also be offering shared SAN storage over the internal network as well. This will allow you fast and expandable NFS or iSCSI storage for your systems on the internal network, though with the VPN it would also allow you to mount these to your local system or systems in other facilities, etc. Performance would be worse over such distances, but it would provide several new options for accessing that data. The VPN also does provide direct access to the private IPs/network for our backup system, private.backup.steadfast.net.
