Pinned topic Accessing FileNet ECM Application(ICN) through internet

‏2013-04-16T10:14:42Z |
Content Navigator 2.0.1 with FileNet Content Manager 

We want to access Content Navigator through Internet. So, We have thought of following 3 approaches to achieve the same:
                                                                        
1) 
Giving Public IP to Server 1 and keeping Server 2 in internal network where ICN is hosted.

2) 
Using Web Server with HTTP Proxy.                                    
In which WAS server is in the internal Firewall and link through a Web Server using LAN. Web Server has external Firewall through which external client can access. PFA Architecture for this approach.

3)
Using Network Address Translation(NAT).
                                                                        
Please let us know the feasibility of the 3 approaches as listed above and which one would be the recommended approach from IBM. 

Also, let us know if there could be another approach to achieve the same.

We are deploying following components of FileNet as per the below

existing Lotus Domino.All the existing servers are in internal network.

    There isn't a recommended approach because this is entirely up to a given organization.  Which approach you'd choose typically is based on what technologies you have available, what your security requirements are, and how you typically deploy other applications.
