I do hope for you Václav that you never misspell or have misspelled
anything! I am not so lucky!
To the kindly given “real” answers to my questions. There are
a lot of factors that do not permit the specific set-up made to utilize Port-Forwarding.
We have to keep it with dynamic access.
Again - at present we have around 14 bases around the globe and around
120 persons that need to synchronize basically from anywhere as they are not
stationed at these bases. The synchronization dates are set by regulations.
However, we can set a “stop press date” - meaning - we can set a time
frame of some days for the synchronization to take place.
The personnel can-not be online all the time. They access the internet
by different means - for example UMTS, G3, LTE, wired LAN, Hotspots wherever available
etc. Satellite Data Link is out of the question due to pricing – and – due to
the fact that every expensive equipment that is portable tends to get own (two)
feet (is stolen).
We leave defined PC’s at main bases with stable internet connection on.
This on a 24 hours, 7 days a week basis (abbreviated internationally as 24/7
basis - UN abbreviation to be exact). Oh yes - the main bases we could set up
to interconnect utilizing Port Forwarding - the rest NOT. Here we trust in VPN
And to our Bug Reporter - please note the difference between the word
bases and basis (I hope not to have it misspelled anywhere in the text. As to Grammar
etc, I refer to the Oxford - not the Cambridge, Queens or Webster or other Dictionary)
As to internet availability and stability - we are talking about
countries like Central African Republic, Republic of Kongo, Mali, Nigeria,
South Sudan etc. Cynically expressed - Internet access there is very very
stable and it is available always and everywhere!!!
At present it is a test set-up - or - one could say a try. As to
requirements we have to choose the system that offers the best stability.
We have to measure the stability because of regulatory requirements.
These are contained in a lot of rules and documents about Electronic Libraries
- that is exactly what we have to synchronize. At present this is around 8 GB
in 2000 files contained in 3 folders with subfolders.
I am sorry to have chosen words that obviously were not correctly
understood. I will try not make that fault in future times.
Thanks for your understanding and for the true answers
