Unanswered Question

Hi all, just a quick question, is it ok to have all my vpn services and all internet services on the same firewall, or is it best practice to have seperate boxes, from a security perspective.

I have this problem too.

It will be better if you use the separate box for the VPN and Firewall.

It really depends on your business model and budget. I use two ASA5520 in failover mode for all of the above.
