So I need to run a bit of software on my local network that I just have the .exe for. The caveat is:
- The software needs access to the internet to produce a bunch of files.
- I need to access those files from another computer on the network (they will be large so over the internet doesn't make much sense).
- The exe will run on windows only.
- The developer will also need remote access to the computer to update the exe so I obviously don't want him to be able to access my local network.
Its 99% likely the software is completely fine but there is the 1% chance it isn't so how can I run the software so it has access to the internet but not to any other resource on the network (and can't get itself access) but other machines on the LAN will be able to access files it produces. Right now all I can think of is running it on a seperate internet connection and having it host an FTP.
I was planning on running this on Windows Server 2008 R2 and have the ability to virtualize the computer through VMWare.
