Home Test Lab: Question #529
Posted on 2014-01-14
I have searched EE for something close to what I am attempting to accomplish, but have not found any decent results matching my exact question. I do apologize for duplicating this question AGAIN.
Current Hardware acquired (will get more if needed):
Dell PowerEdge 2950 Server, Cisco 1760 Router, Dell PowerConnect 2816 Switch, couple of 5-port desktop switches, Cisco Linksys E3000 Router
Obviously a hodge-podge of hardware. Here is what I would like to accomplish...
Set up a HTTP/FTP/etc server to be accessed from external while providing internet access to internal clients utilizing DHCP to provide IP addresses. My problem is that I don't know exactly how this should be set up.
My guess is that the Server should be the edge device? Or the Cisco 1760 Router? This is how it looks in my mind:
ISP Cable Modem-->Cisco 1760 Router-->PE2950-->Cisco 2816 Switch-->Internal Clients
I'm looking for a basic, but expandable setup. Again, I can purchase additional hardware if required to accomplish my goal. Thank you for your time in answering this and sorry if this is a duplicate question.
