connecting the office and warehouse

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. I currently run and operate my own small business. I'm decently tech savy and am leasing a portion of a 250,000sq ft building. I am leasing 20,000sqft of it and have an office up front with a couple other people. Other business also have space inside this building such as a moving company and a file storage company. There is a T1 line running throughout. Now I setup a little network by my employees and want to be able to sit in my office and access there computers from there to see what exactly they are doing. Also want to setup a 30 inch monitor by them with excel open on it and only I can access it and not them. Also I do not want them to see my computer or password protect it.

ok first of all, for separation of the network, you will need to set up a few VLAN's, this is normally best on a firewall although a router can control ACL's also just not to the packet level. However since you mentioned other business's utilizing the same T1 a Firewall will be your best bet.

As for your domain or workgroup, depending on how you have your business set up. A domain may be advisable so you can have all your data backed up to a centralized server.

Now monitoring computer use, this can get hairy real quick. First of all from the legal side, your employees will have to acknowledge that you could monitor and even then you have some issues also. You should consult your legal adviser (knowledgeable with computer use and internet usage laws) to make sure you don't screw yourself in the long run. I'll say this once, you just can't track everything an employee does on the computer because they are your employee, doing so could open you up to fines and legal repercussions your employee could take against you.

The best thing you should do is bring in some professionals to set up your network and domain. If you grow in size maybe hire on some dedicated IT staff. As a side note if you just wanting to make sure your employees can not go to certain websites, you will just need a web content filtering appliance. These used to be separate devices (http://www.bluecoat.com/products/webfilter is one example). Now many UTM's (Next Generation Firewalls) have this as a service (http://www.juniper.net/us/en/product...g-series/ssg5/ is an example UTM). Regardless bring in some experienced professionals even if just on a consulting level to get you set up properly.
