I'm running a regular node on a VPS (interacts with rpc wallet via PHP), and would like to use the same VPS as a remote node for my GUI wallet. Are there any security concerns if I do this? These are the two commands I'd use for the daemons:

For the regular node:

./monerod --rpc-bind-ip --rpc-bind-port 18081

The second instance I'd use to connect to from an external GUI wallet:

./monerod --rpc-bind-ip <external.ip.of.node> --restricted-rpc --confirm-external-bind

Finally, in the second instance, is there any security risk to using --rpc-bind-ip instead of --rpc-bind-ip <external.ip.of.node>?
