i can't recommend to use ocs-inventory with a direct outside connection, because there were several security vulnerables found in the past.

OCS-Inventory can be a popular target for outside hackers, because if the hacker hits the ocs-inventory server, he has controll of all your computers.

You can work with a vpn connection to access the ocs-inventopry server from outside, and all clients from outside also have to do this.

perhaps you can to something with a apache directive - but this is outside my competence


Kind regards
