Hi Carl

Normally if you have high bandwidth capacity links subscribed at your location and have more number of tunnels being established better to have them connected onto your router which then can be connected to your firewall or vpn device. (ex: central location)

If you have less bandwidth capacity links and very less tunnels configured then you can have vpn device itself to terminate ur wan connectivity..(ex: remote locations)

Re: interent ip's on edge of network

so do people normally have a router, then the inside ethernet sits on the public ip ?

Re: interent ip's on edge of network

Hi Carl

If you have router in front of the firewall then you can either have the inside ethernet of router/outside ethernet of firewall in public ip block or private ip block.

I have seen mix of them in most of the networks where these kinda setup has been deployed.

Re: interent ip's on edge of network

is they were in private block, I gather you would have to use nat on the router then ?
