Bottom Line Up Front. I have a printer that needs to print across the internet and a NAS that needs to be accessed as well. Currently have setup my routers to forward both the ip address and ports 21 and 9100. I have firewalls on one PC and the other is a laptop that my wife uses for her work.
Basically it looks like this
- My PC / NAS / Linksys Router / Cable Modem
- Wife's Laptop / Network Printer (directly connected to router) / Linksys Router / Cable Modem
Basically I have already accomplished in getting FTP access on floor 2 from floor 1 and I have been able to print from Floor 1 to Floor 2's printer. Oh and if you are wondering -- Yes I am running and paying for two cable modems in my house. Its more about a renters thing and not wanting to screw up drywall with extra CATV cabling and such.
Just seeing what extra security measures I need to put in place if any.
