Hello,

what ist the correct way to connect a truenas-system behind a firewall to an truecommand behind another firewall?
i like to have the following setup: remote truenas servers on prem, truecommand central, but no VPN connection between them.

Thanks,
Thomas

IMO the correct way would be to setup a VPN between endpoints.
However if this is not possible or ideal you could open and forward port 443 on the firewall on the NAS side to the NAS from the TrueCommand IP only.
Another Option would be to look at our Upcoming TrueCommand Cloud service which is designed for exactly this use case and handles automatically creating the necessary vpn connections between the NAS and the Cloud instance to secure communications to all your NAS devices. This should be available in the near future.
