ISA Server/Netgear

August 18, 2009 at 13:07:17
Specs: Windows 2000
I have both a Netgear box and ISA Server 2000 running. I'm not sure if these two have an issue with conflicting with one another or if its overkill. How would you suggest I use these machines to the best of their ability.

Have Netgear run the router and firewall while ISA runs the proxy?

Have Netgear run the router and leave the rest to ISA?

Should I do away with one or the other and why?

Any opinions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

why are you setup this way? what are you protecting? how many users? without knowing that no one can advise you.

We have over 100 employees. When coming into this job; this was already set up this way.

Keep it as is. I run multiple layers of firewall using a PIX and a Sonicwall before internet traffic hits my lan.

This is a corporate standard which is to have two layers of firewall so if the first gets hacked you will still have protection from the second layer of firewall which gives you time to fix the first firewall issue without them getting to your lan.

BTW a good rule of thumb is if it isn't broke don't fix it.
