Server Access Security

Unrestricted - Two networks become one. Users on one network can interact with resources on the other network, restricted only by the access rights associated with those resources. Network mail moves freely between the two networks. The StreetTalk naming information on the two networks merges.

Restricted - Two networks exchange only mail messages that are force routed. While low-level routing information is exchanged and visible through the VNSM (VINES Network and Systems Management) program, StreetTalk information is not exchanged.

Secure - Networks exchange no information. No traffic can travel between your server and other servers in other networks.
