- Netware 5.0 (50 licenses)
- Exchange Server 5.5
I need a good firewall with VPN services.
I am considering an 'upgrade' to Netware for small business which will include Netware with 50 clients,
Bordermanager Firewall, Faxing and Groupwise.
Since this package also includes Groupwise... I also have the option of migrating and solving some long
outstanding problems with Exchange such as viruses, forms and workflow management (never very good in
Exchange), single instance stores and overall much better security (esp. over Internet).
My questions: Is this a sound idea because I'm basically (in a sense) downgrading, however, this company
does not expect to grow to 50 clients in the next 2 years (currently 28 clients and 40 computers/connections).
What are the potential pitfalls to this plan?
Any additional benefits to doing this as I still have to
propose this plan to my CFO).
My other alternative was to install ISA2000 (apx. same cost).
I'll start the reward at 150pts but will offer more for really good, detailed answers.
