I am setting up a network for 10 computers. The main requirement is that there must be a central file server that can be accessed via VPN and a direct dialup connection. Here is where the confusion sets in. Should I purchase a ADSL modem/router that acts as the gateway to the internet and then plug all of the computers into a switch, or must the file server be the machine which establishes the internet connection and acts as a gateway for the other computers.
That is, shoudl the file server be between the Internet and router (Internet-Server-Router) or does it not matter?
Will this have any impact on whether someone dialing in can access the server and internet over that connection?
I hope that the quesiton is clear.
