Firewall as DHCP
Posted on 2006-07-09
Currently we have a DSL modem that is connected to a SOHO Watchguard Firewall that in turns feeds our three netgear switches and hence our workstations and four servers.
The SOHO was setup as the DHCP so I am assuming it is assigning the IP's.
There are times when our Internet goes down, our network also goes down, in other words when there is no internet we can not access any network folders. Is this because the firewall is the DHCP and is connected to the switches?
If so, should we make our domain controller the DHCP and not firewall.
Thank you in advance.
