There is no single best architecture for accommodating Internet requests requiring access to corporate intranets. Instead, trade-offs must be made between two competing goals security of the intranet against an Internet attack and ease of access to services by both Internet and intranet clients. This course describes how firewalls are used to restrict network access and the guidelines for positioning servers within firewalls. It also explores how to configure Oracle Connection Manager to accept or reject connection requests and log connection events, and how to read connection events from the Oracle Connection Manager log.
