Accessing PDMLink across the Internet

First off let me say that I'm a newbie. Can someone give me some instruction on how to setup PDMLink so that I can access it from home? Yes we do have a firewall will that make it impossible?? Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks!

You will need have/do the following:

1. a public ip address that your firewall nats to the internal IP address
of your PDMLink apache web server

2. setup your firewall to allow incoming (and outgoing) http (or https
if your PDMLink server is using https) connections to your public
ip address

3. add the public ip address to your public facing dns server (or add
the public ip and hostname to your hosts file on your home computer)

The steps are the same as adding a self hosted web site because that is
exactly what you are doing.

If you have VPN (virtual private networking) set up at your compny for remote access, then that would be the easiest way to handle this.

You would just connect to the VPN and log into PDMLink as if it was on a local network. If you have floating license servers for Pro/E or other software on your internal network, you can access them as well and avoid doing things like checking out a license to take home.

This is what we use for remote accessfor our CAD users and it works very well.
