I have 2 vendors who will remain unnamed, who have drawn out 2 very
different firewall setups. Does anyone have a bias or comment?
setup 1 Internet - router - mail server - packet
- web server - filtering - internal
- interactive database - firewall
Internet - Application - - | mail server
firewall |interactive data base
Both external clients and internal employees need to access the interactive
On setup 2, I was advised that rules can be used to restrict who and what
Basically create a road map throught the F/W.
On setup 1, I was advised to use only the router to send people to either
the mail or web server. Also I was told that this could leave my database
open to compromise (the thought did cross my mind.)
The last problem, is the d/b will need to update btrieve files from a
different server on--line.
Thanks for listening!
