The Question is:
i would like to know if LAT is able to bind to multiple adapters. i know it
will do failover. but we have two NICs and want to run LAT over both
interfaces. these two networks are our DMZ and a firewalled portion of our
network seperated by a router. we w
ant to be able to use our printers on either side of the network and therefor
need LAT on both adapters.
The Answer is :
Please review the contents of SYS$MANAGER:LAT$SYSTARTUP.TEMPLATE for
instructions on how to define links to multiple adapters, lin the
current version of the file, look after the section entitled:
Start LAT Protocol
Some firewalls can also open up paths for protocols such as LAT,
allowing LAT traffic to traverse the firewall.
Do realize you are bypassing a firewall; effectively creating a new
hole through the firewall via this host; a bridge through to the DMZ.
You will want to ensure you do not open up bi-directional LAT with
a host bridging the firewall unless that is absolutely necessary,
as that provides the potential for bi-directional connectivity
bypassing the firewall.
It may be more appropriate to add additional printers than to open
new potential paths for security breaches.
