VLAN Creation ACL's and Advice?
Posted on 2010-11-25
Sorry if this is a basic question but Im a bit of a newbie at this stuff, more of an AD admin guy.
I have a client who has a managed building, with an ADSL connection shared out throughout the buiilding. The ADSL router is also a DHCP server.
A client in the office is now thinking of investing in a SBS box so needs a new ADSL line with fixed IP, but more importantly they require security from all of the other offices so that no other businesses can access their systems.
My initial thoughts are as follows, but if anyone has any better ideas then please let me know:-
1) Configure VLANS for each of the offices based on the ports on the switch that I will aquire.
2) Create ACLS which will deny access to the "SBS" companies network to anyone else in the building.
3) Use port forwarding on port 25 to froward emails to the SBS box to the internal IP address of the SBS box
So firslty, any pitfalls people can see, and also can anyone reeomend any particular hardware for the job. I have used HP Procurve gear in the past and Netgear but any ideas will be welcomed.
Thanks in advance
