Hi.
My proxmox host firewall with public IP is locked to accept only connections from my office static IP. Virtual machine are using a dedicated public IP with a front firewall.

Have sense to use double authentication on a host, that answer only from public static IP requests?

Hi.
But you have it running in your office or with multiple hosts in a data center?
I'm running single host in a data center and I can't get a dedicated hardware vpn server.

My question is that if have sense to use 2FA when the proxmox control panel answer only to a static IP or the firewall rules on m to answer only to static ip
