Hi,

I am the host of a 7.2 DNN website for a company. There are people that are specialized in security that keep telling me:

"Isolate the login page in a different web server that is only accessible by VPN"

To avoid public access on this critical page and that could lead to brute force.

Is this even possible? never heard of it before.

I know there is IP Filters etc, but lets ignore these options.

Rashid,

our solution is to login on a Web Application Firewall using two-ways authentification (Username/Password, then the user gets a random PIN on his mobile phone that he has to enter). After this he is logged into the domain (with AD credentials) and can get what he is allowed to. Of course you can configure the environment in a way that the WAF Login is only accessible by VPN, but in my eyes this would be a bit of an overkill.

Happy DNNing!
Michael
