VLAN To Run Another Web Server

Hello. I have a 5 pack of static IPs from my ISP. I have the whole internal network with the primary web server running on the 1st IP in the list. Everything runs fine.

Now I have deployed a flash media server which needs to have the port appended to it because port 80 is taken. I have a few choices but whats the best and easiest?

a.I can go directly into the ISP switch buit into the modem and configure the NIC of the Flash Media Server to an external IP/GW of one in my 5 pack. (Being that the FMS requires a lot of bandwidth, this may be the best choice. )

b.The FMS machine (10.1.3.44) is currently  taking the 4th port of the Cisco RVS4000 (10.1.3.1) and going around the switch so I could configure a vlan (I think) and setup port 80 again on that vlan (I think).

c. I can go buy another RVS4000 to plug into ISP

With choices a or b I will need to know the procedure.

Note:
The primary network is a domain and FMS (10.1.3.44) is a domain member and default DNS does point to DC at 10.1.3.32.
So will I be able to maintain connectivity to primary network or will I need to address everything by the external IP?

Unfortunately the RVS4000 only allows 1 WAN IP.  The RV016, RV042 and RV082 allow multiple WAN IP's.

pony10us: OK so what about going straight to the ISP switch with some sort of network edg configuration (which I've never attempted)?

So you have a router from the ISP that the RVS4000 is plugged into?  

You would need some access to the configuration on the ISP's router to configure a NAT to send all traffic addressed to one of the unused IP addresses to the FMS server.

I think this config will break the ability for that server to be on the domain.

If you were considering buying an additional RVS4000 I would suggest replacing the one with one of the other options I mentioned. That should give you more flexibility.
