Hi Daniel,

When it comes to fw's and switches my skills are not that great as I am a
server\Citrix\ESX\\SAN guy and I normally have someone who is a network\fw
guru to do all this stuff for me. Having said that, I do have a 24-port GIG
switch with VLAN capabilities, so I am going to figure out how to do this
just so I can learn.

Thanks for the advice, its greatly appreciated.
