How GoAnywhere Gateway Works
GoAnywhere Gateway will masquerade as the same file-sharing services (e.g. FTP/S, SFTP, HTTPS servers) that it is front-ending for. When
trading partners need to exchange data with your company, they will connect to GoAnywhere Gateway instead. GoAnywhere Gateway
will then bind those requests to the appropriate services in the private network. Any additional data channels needed are opened from the
private network and through GoAnywhere Gateway, again requiring no inbound ports.
GoAnywhere Gateway will make connections to external systems on behalf of users and applications in the private network. By routing
outbound requests through a centralized point with GoAnywhere Gateway, you will be able to more easily manage file transfers from
your firewall. The forward proxy feature additionally hides the identities and locations of your internal systems for security purposes.
