Network Design

Hi,

I need a advice on placement of following network equipments for my local area network.

T1 coming to 2611XM, i need to have a firewall PIX 515E and VPN 3005 along with 2950 switch. What would be the best way to implement this network.

VPN 3005--------2611XM----PIX515E---------(Connecting to 2950)

|

2950-------------------------------------Connecting to PIX 515E

What would be the best placement implementation of above equipments. Furthermore i need to have a email server along with ftp server for remote access. where should i place the email server and ftp server. should i use one of the ports on PIX 515E and setup as DMZ and then put a switch connecting to Mail server and ftp server. 2611XM has two port analog modem wan interface card that can be used for connecting to the VPN through dialup from remote locations and another port if the T1 connection goes down then it can be utilized as backup option.

Please advise,

Thanx.

Re: Network Design

Hi,

The usual practice is to place a gateway router, behind which a firewall will

be placed. As you said, use PIX's DMZ to install both the servers.

Hope this helps.
