just an open question regarding the best way to set up the external internet connection on a LAN.
on our core switch we have a user subnet 192.168.1.0/24 on vlan10. the default gateway of which is the vlan interface on 192.168.1.1.
the internal address of our firewall is on 10.1.1.1 (this is the default gateway of the switch) and is also going to be connected in to the switch.
would it be preferable to set up an "internet" vlan and connect the firewall in to this; or to use a routed port on say 10.1.1.2?
any opinions are welcome...
