I haven't got a lot of experience with setting up firewalls but I
_think_ this will work. Feel free to enlighten me, please.
I want/need a firewall to sit between an outside world connection and my
internal network. The catch: ths historical setup is horrible. No
firewall and systems sitting in the open and barely protected. The only
way the I can firewall ALL of the systems that need protection, I have
to do the following:
Put a firewall at an address (wan side) that is a public address. The
other (lan side) address will also have to be an address that is within
the public address space of the wan side.
A - Is this going to work?
B - Am I buying more trouble by doing it?
I have a monowall box about ready to go into place but I'm worried it
will bring the network down if I am wrong about it working.
Any advice welcome.
