Internet VS Local Network

Most installation of SynaMan will reside behind a firewall creating two networks:

  1. Internet
  2. Local network
The following image tries to explain this concept.

Every machine is assigned an IP address, which is used by other machines to connect. A firewall hides this IP address from users on the Internet and exposes a different address, called the public IP. Users on the Internet always connect to SynaMan using the public IP address.

When creating a public link in SynaMan, you have to decide where will the end-user be accessing SynaMan from. If this user resides inside your network, you can send them the link for Local Network. Otherwise, you must send them a link for Internet.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Can users on the local network use the link for meant for the Internet?
Answer: The answer depends on the configuration of your firewall. Although most firewalls allow this by default, some devices, such as Cisco PIX, does not allow machines on the local network to connect using the public IP.
