The Question is:
Hi dummy elephant,
I have Alpha with 2 NIC
Different types of Alpha
Mixed VMS versions 7.x
How can I be shure my Alpha do no routing or act as a router between the 2 NIC?
(I want my two networks be absolutely independant except of what is filtered
by an application that talk on the 2 sides of the Alpha)
(I have decnet and/or TCPIP)
Does I have to check only the licenses (and what licenses) or what TCPIP or
Decnet tasks are started?
The Answer is :
Please contact the services organization for assistance in securing
and hardening your OpenVMS system -- your question is potentially
exceedingly complex, particularly depending on the network address
assignments of the two networks.
Assuming a simple network address assignment and simple software
configuration, disable both DECnet and IP routing using the provided
product configuration tools. This will reduce the exposure, but --
without an evaluation of all applications operating -- may not
eliminate all potential traffic route-through.
External firewall boxes are an inexpensive and effective option.
