Can SBS 2000 be put behind a firewall?
Posted on 2004-11-09
I am dealing with an old server that just can't stomach it's load but buget won't stomach a new server so I'm looking for ways to alieviate the server's stress. Presently, it is running Microsoft Small Business Server 2000. The server hosts a website, email, performs routing & firewall responsiblities, and serves files to the 9 client (Win98) network. I want to put the server behind a Cisco PIX 501 to both alieviate some stress from the server and put me one step closer to a multi-server network.
I would like the Cisco PIX 501 to start serving DHCP and handle all internet access for the client computers. What changes will I need to make to the servers built-in ISA firewall to make this happen. The server will still be responsible for hosting files, email, and the website.
