Hi Guys.

I have an ADSL connection with 4 Public IP addresses and 4 ethernet ports on the modem. The first IP address is connected to the WAN port on my router. I have conected the second port of the modem directly to my ethernet switch (so that I can assign the second IP address to a network device that needs a public IP to operate. My public IP addresses are of the following format:

93.109.xxx.xxx

My internal IP addresses (on my LAN) are on the following network (192.168.1.0).

Will I have any security issues with this setup, or should I make any changes?

Many thanks.

You might run into some problems because whatever host you give a public ip to will be out on the internet without a protection. A router will help secure things with limiting incoming connections.
