I'm a medium term lurker (and very happy user) but a first time poster.
I'm using wraps in several locations, and am slowly moving services from
being in the Lan to DMZ subnet at head office. I'm looking at moving
the mail server next which has c. 50 users, both on and offsite. The
majority of the onsite users (which is the majority of all users) use a
bandwidth hogging MAPI pluggin. I'm concerned that the WRAP wont give me
the throughput I need, as I gather 40mbit is as much as a wrap will
route (from Chrises tests of a year or two ago).
My question to the list is, if it turns out my fears are right, what is
the must cost effective way of getting 100mbit ish between LAN and DMZ?
I'm happy to buy a new 1u box if needs be, but would rather avoid the
expense if possible. Policy dictates new kit only, and I would tend to
buy HP DLs through inclination so I cant buy a no-name pc from ebay. I
wondered whether one of the bigger embedded systems, like one of the
mini ITX systems from VIA as sold by www.linitx.co.uk would do?
Anyones experiences or thoughts would be gratefully received.
