My company is going to a Server/Client setup. Before we were a P2P network. I will have a Win2K domain controller/file server and then a Win2K/Exchange2K server. We currently have DSL then it goes into a hub and then to the machines. What firewall would any of you recommend. Obviously price is the biggest factor. Should we go with a software firewall or hardware? If hardware, where does it go? Inbetween the DSL and the hub?
