I am setting up a network in a datacenter where the Internet pipe will be provided to me via a FastEthernet CAT-5 cable. It seems to me that I won't need a router in this case but because this is the first time that I do this I want to be sure. Here is my scenario:
The ISP will provide a FastE connection and a /30 IP block that I will use for the outside (WAN) interface of my PIX. The inside interface if the PIX will use a private 10.0.0.X IP block and be connected to a switch and several servers. The ISP has also provided a /24 block of public address that they will route to my PIX and then I will NAT the public block to the corresponding internal, private IP.
This should work, right? If not, why?
