VLAN To Run Another Web Server

Last Modified: 2013-05-20
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?
