I'd like to set up secure and efficient system for that case I decided to use all servers stand alone (web, DNS, ftp, Database etc. on different PC)

About 10 servers which are in LAN can they use only one static IP to connect internet and give ftp, web, mail serviceses etc.  to user.

Hi tyildirir,

No problem.  Do you have access to ISA 2004?  If you have you can use this secure firewall product (or any other firewall product for that matter) to perform the required caching and also port forwarding to the Internal server.  You get security and availability for the price of one device.

ISA Setup how-to:

Understand that placing these server on your internal network, then direct port forwarding makes you vulnerable to any exploits.  At a minimum keep them updated.  It be best to move them to a DMZ.  Microsoft products are not the safest things to give direct internet traffic.

You may not even need ISA, depending on what you want to run you may be able to use simple port forwarding on the firewall as a lot of the services you mention all run on different ports.

I am still thinking do I need  ISA whether or not. I have ADSL connection with good upload capacity which is 1.3 Mbit.

I am managing about 30 domains.  including web sites hosting e-mail hosting. Also some web sites has got database most of them MySQL. for more efficiency I'd like to keep databases in diffrent server. I know many people keeping web sites e0mail servers and dtabase on the sama server the architecture may be fine if you are hosting 3-5 domains on your web server but the domains will increase the architecture is not working well. I have got WRT WAG seriees Linksys routers. Because when I read on many forums for usung easy and efficent port forwarding many people using LInksys(I know cisco is the best but now I need budget).

thanks for anyy answer

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Hi,

The thing you need to consider is security.  Port forwarding will provide you with a measure of security, but will not provide intrusion and hacker attack detection.  If you are making money hosting web sites and it happens to be important to you, then maybe you would like to consider the security you need to provide.  If you are hosting for other people and not just yourself, you need to ask yourself, can I afford to not be as secure as my budget allows.

Have a look at the following products that will allow for true firewall protection:

I agree with itcoza - you're a professional doing professional things.  You need professional equipment - a "real" firewall, and a 'real' router - like a small Cisco 1800 at least.
