How do I configure a web hosting network
Posted on 2011-03-01
I have a small business and I'm bringing my web site and a handfull of web applications in-house. Here is what I have.
1 database server with SQL Server
1 Files Server
1 Web Server IIS 7
10 Local Client machines
1 Static IP
My question is what is the best practice for setting up this type of network. Do I simply connect all my devices to a centrialzed LAN and use port forwarding to direct HTTP requests to the mail server?
Does that leave my database server open for attack from the Web?
Do I Need to separate the client machines and the database server from the incomming web traffic?
Thanks for your help,
