This is my problem, I currently have a building location where my work offers wifi. I have built an app for them that connects to our sql database. My work wants the app at that location where wifi is offered to the public.
Currently there is free wifi offered to the public at this location, so the modem has a netgear wifi router attached to it. First question: (1) Where would I attach the vpn router? To the wifi router or modem? (2) Would there be a security risk for my works database if I set this all up(i.e. had a vpn connection to our database and had free wifi at this location also)?
I was told by the other I.T. guy that this is a possible security risk because anybody hooked up to wifi could access our network? Eventhough this building location is not networked to our main network.
Thanks in advance. Im really just looking for another professional opinion.
