A bit of advice please?
I am setting up a Network with Server 2003 and 8PC's.
They were previously on Broadband but it is not available at new premises. Hence havimg to use ISDN
If I place an XP Pro SP2 machine with a PCI modem and let that control the connection, would the Windows Firewall be adequate protection for the Network, or should I look at putting a router in?
Also if I do this will the server automatically pick up traffic say for a mail server, or I am I just being STUPID here.
My instincts are that it wouldn't be very safe, and I wouldn't be able to set up Port forwadring for a mail server (etc)
