Our office was bought by anohter company. For a lot of reasons the old company still wants to use a certain database server in our network. But the management wants to have 2 physical separated networks. And disable the possibility of browsing each others networks.

We use a client-application on a terminal server that uses the database on the particular databaseserver.

Are there any best practices on these kind of problems.

I thought of a VPN tunnel between our networks and for the old company only access to the terminal server IP address.

Then they can access the client app and nothing else. Right?

Hi Theape

Stick a router in the middle with access control on it. An access control list will stop unwanted browsing.

Or

Stick a firewall between them and allow 1 way communication. Put yourself in the Internal Network and the people you want to keep out in the external network.

Or

Set permissions on the files that are being accessed.

Or

Create VLANS on a layer 3 switch and split the users between them accordingly.
