Can an OSS connection be established through a VPN tunnel with SAP over the internet, and if so, how is it done?
Yes, this is possible now. I recommend you visit this URL: http://service.sap.com/internetconnection and download the document "Remote Connectivity for mySAP.com -Solutions over the Internet".
In essence, you need a VPN switch or gateway that connects to another VPN at SAP. You also need SAPRouter with an official IP address.
If you don't have access to the document you may e-mail me and I will send you a copy.
To save money and to keep things very simple, you can always connect to the SAP MarketPlace, which is also known as the SAP R/3 Web. The URL is: http://service.sap.com SAP has worked hard to move all functions found at the SAPNet R/3 Frontend into the MarketPlace.
