Qnet over Wan advice

Post by Bill Caroselli » Mon Dec 29, 2003 10:32 pm

Consider:

Computer A is behind a company firewall. Also, it's IP address is
fake (NAT).

Computer B is on the Internet, not behind a firewall and has a real IP
address.

How can I QNET these two systems together?

Also, what security precautions should I take, especially on the system
on the open Internet?

Along the scurity lines, I notice that QNX6 still only supports 8
character passwords. Of course I can make my password as long as I
want, but if the first 8 characters match then the password compares OK,
regardless of the rest of the string.

I say "still" because near the end of QNX4's life I thought it was
discussed that QNX6 would support longer passwords.

Will longer passwords ever be supported? Can I use longer passwords
now?
