We are contemplating a 56KB connection to the Internet. Our main network
consists of PC's on a Token-Ring connected to several Ethernet subnets.
I will probably add a Cisco 2513 (1-TR, 1-Eth, 2-WAN) to bridge the TR to
an Ethernet which would be the portion exposed to the Internet. I want
to allow mail in and out. We will set up a public WWW, Gopher, and FTP
server on the Ethernet segment. I want to provide a way to get from the
internal net to all Internet services via proxy or some other secure means
which will hide the details of the internal net.
I am seeking proposals from firewall vendors on products to help accomplish
this project. Please respond via email to avoid cluttering this list with
I am also looking for Internet Access Providers. If you know of or are
one in the Winston-Salem, NC area please respond via email as well.
Anyone with advice on network configuration or other issues, please feel
free to respond to the list or via email.
I am studying the TIS fwtk and have the Cheswick and Bellovin book. Am
about to go after the FAQ. What other resources are available?
Please send proposals to:
