NethServer Version: 7.4
I’ve found a few topics addressing this a bit, but I don’t think any have reached a conclusion (at least as far as I’ve seen). I’m considering running a Neth instance in a VPS, rather than hosting it myself. But this leads to a few network-related questions:
- The docs say that, when you have only a single NIC (as with a VPS), that NIC must be green. That means, of course, that all services, including the server manager, are open to the entire Internet.
- Seems a more secure arrangement would be for the NIC to be red, and a VPN interface to be green. I saw one thread asking about this, but no detail or resolution. Is this possible? Practical?
- It’d probably work best if the Neth box were semi-permanently VPN’d to my home network. My pfSense router already acts as a VPN server, so it’d probably work best if the Neth box were to just connect to that on startup, and automatically reconnect on any interruptions. Is it feasible to set this up?
