If 1 part of this post should be continued with another 500 points added let me know. I will close questions out and continue them as appropriate. I have unlimited points, because I have a paid membership. I want to make sure I set this up right.
I am setting up A Dell Poweredge 1600sc Server with windows 2003 SBS that is allready connected to a peer to peer network.
It is using a linksys router with a broadband connection (sole firewall NAT) email and and port 80 forwarded to an existing workstation running IIS . With the server I also picked up a WATCHGAURD FIREBOX SOHO 6 Firewall.
I need some ideas about security.
Is there any value to leaving the lynksys as the connection to broadband and setting up the server and or the other devices on the soho thereby having double NAT. If I do this and I use a different range off IP for the two different networks (10.xxx and 198.xxx)
OK this can be the first part of the question.
