I need your expert advise and suggestion regarding my plan.
I'm planning to use Blesta for my services and install it to a VPS.
However, this is not accessible online without accessing the VPN server.
Ok I will explain further...
1. Customer cannot access the billing system via normal browsing (e.g. http://billing.domain.com
) - Access has to be forbidden.
2. Client will be given a VPN access then that is the online time that he can access the site directly from the server.
Its like the server is only allowing 1-static IP to browse the site then the rest are blocked. We are doing this in my previous company. I can access the CMS normally when I'm at the office but if I'm working from home or other location. I need to use OpenVPN then use my network userid and password before I can browse the site.
I'm planning to do this with my billing system since I find this more secured and I have more control in terms of client information.
My only concern is the hassle of asking my client to install OpenVPN to gain access on the server. Do you have any other suggestions?
Thank you in advance.
