We have here Cisco routers and I have to do my filtering with them, which
I'm not happy with. How about sites having one link to the outside world
have the Cisco do the routing and put a dual-homed PC between the Cisco
and the outside world? Recently there have been announcment of pretty nice
PC-based routers which should be able to do this work without affecting the
throughput too much.
This solution would be hard to implement for sites like us where we have about
4 links to outside the campus.
Any comments about how usefull is such a solution?
