What are the risks of having it setting the internet up this way? What should I use for an NAT device instead? I only have Household routers and they are terrible with VPN, so that is why I have my Internet Connection going straight into my Terminal Server.

This isn't a test network either.

Might want to google port trojan. Your TS server is at extreme risk.

Your TS server is at extreme risk.

^ Many Homes have their computers connected directly to the internet without any security problems. I have been running it this way for 10 months already. I haven't encountered any trojans lately.

So I personally see that connecting even my Domain Controller with absolutely no firewall would be fine, especially when I am not a target for anything.

Right now, Routing and Remote Access is blocking all the ports except VPN and any ports I specify.

Should I then buy a Firewall or something that call allow Windows VPN as well as Port Forwarding and Internet Access? I also believe that since my Terminal Server is 100 MBPS to the Internet and the Speed of it is Pentium 4 3.00 GHz, there is no loss of speed over using a router and the speed is going based on the speed of the router.

Please correct me if I am wrong.
