NAM as Reverse Proxy for Groupwise POA

Hi all,

we are evaluating the possibilties for NAM. Is it possible and usefull to use NAM to protect the access from outside the firewall to Groupwise POA?

Thanks for your thoughts.

You mean you want to protect port 1677? If so, you can either the SSL
VPN client which requires the user to setup a session with NAM first.
If you don't want to do this then you could create a tunnel through NAM
but I don't think it adds a whole lot in security as there's no
filtering going on really.

Antw: Re: NAM as Reverse Proxy for Groupwise POA

This was exactly what i want to know. Tunneling Port 1677. Using VPN before connecting is currently no option.
Is NAM able to proxy other protocols then HTTP/HTTPS? E.g. ActiveSync for Novell Datasynchronizer or Novell Messenger?

OK thanks for the hints.

Would you protect Groupwise POA Access with NAM or is there an other
solution with more security??

The protocol between gw client and poa has already 56 bit proprietary
encryption so not sure if you find that good enough. If not, you could
force SSL usage for communication to the POA.
