Recommendation for outside clients

Dear everyone,

Our Snow Inventory server is installed on our primary domain.

We are now willing to retrieve data from Internet-facing servers that are situated on other domains.

We can:

  • Set up a Snow Inventory Server in the DMZ
  • Open cross-domain communication for those servers to see the SI server

Is there a recommended setup? What is the security added by an external SI server over opening ports? (I guess ports still need to be open cross-domain anyway even with an external server)

I have looked for information in the KB but could not find any details, just the fact that external servers are possible. Did I miss a key document?

Many thanks!
