Configure a Firewall in a excisting network
Posted on 2006-06-20
I have a client who had another IT compnay setup their whole network from scratch. The used to have a netgear router/firewall installed as their main gateway. Once the company redid the network the took out the Netgear and installed a regular 16 port switch. They are running SBS2003 and it is setup as the gateway/router/DHCP/DNS/ etc......This leaves them with no security at all. How is it possible to place a firewall in between the modem and the server or in between the server and the switch? not to sure how this goes but i think its the modem and server. Also what do i need to configure to set this up properly? This sort of urgent as they are worried they are prone to hackers etc...the urgency is the reason for the 500 POINTS.
