SBS 2003 Firewall or External Firewall
Posted on 2004-08-11
I have a question.
I am a programmer who is a complete novice with regard to networks. I am installing SBS 2003 on a machine to bring my network out of the stone ages. (Also, need SQL.)
I have run into a question while performing the installation. The server has two network cards in it, and I am wondering whether I should run the Firewall incorporated into SBS, or use the one in my router/firewall. (SMC Networks broadband router/firewall.)
Which is the more secure way?
Also, if anyone knows the answer to this one: Is it better to let me router be the DHCP server or should I let SBS be the DHCP server?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
