Firewall or router, which comes first
Posted on 2010-09-03
I have a very general question. Consider the following network layout examples:
Which of this setups is the best reccommended setup?
I am thinking that the second setup will easily allow you to connect another router and add another subnet onto the network without interefering with the server configurations. You can also comfortably point the gateway of all machines to be the router.
I use the first setup at my organization and becaue of this the router has no private IP address, so cannot use it as a GW on the clients.
Maybe slightly related to an earlier question but just asking. All answers earn points.
