Hello again! This question is for the small business IT persons here. I currently have a Linksys WRVS440N acting as a VPN/Gateway/Firewall ... as best as it can. I do not have the password for admin access ... courtesy of my vindictive predecessor.
I have a standard 2 DC domain. 1 Exchange box which forwards/receives everything through a GFI based smart host. The rest of the server infrastructure is simply member servers ... ERP/AV/Time Clock ... et al.
Our connectivity is a T1 configured c-bit ... of course.
In regards to network connectivity, I am usually the one who comes in and installs the hardware. That said, I know a little about networking and working with Cisco products. Namely the 4000 series routers(adding additional network interfaces) and the 4506 Catalyst Switches(adding blades). This will be my first run at doing it turn-key for a business.
I would go into more detail but I am not sure how much is needed because my question is only that...
I need a low cost solution to replace the Linksys. I want to be able to offer VPN for up to 10 clients with complete network access. In addition, I will also need to do some port forwarding so I can get to OWA.
Any help is appreciated.
