best hardware firewall choice for a windows server 2003 VPN setup
Posted on 2004-08-24
Hello. I'm fairly new to the whole world of VPN via Windows Server 2003 and AD. I have a home network with a server running Windows Server 2003. I would like to set up a VPN and allow clients to connect to my server and utilize AD to authenticate them. I plan to eventually use L2TP/IPSEC for protocols. However, my question lies on what hardware firewall will be the best for my needs. I want a good firewall for protection of my network. I keep reading about port 1723 and 47 fowarding. What firewall would be the best for my situation?
