Case1 : Modems are typically used to connect to internet by connecting the phone line to a PC or laptop with built in modem (or external modem) and having a dialup account with an ISP.
Case 2:YOu can also hook up the phone line to a router with modem card and configure the router to dial out to the ISP. Your PCs will connect using an ethernet card (connected to a switch). The router's ethernet will also be connected to the same switch. You can then set the router as default gateway and configured NAT on the router to access the internet.
Case 3: If you have a T1 line, the scenario is the same as Case 2. The phone line will be replaced by the T1 line.
In case 1 and 2, bandwidth is restricted to 56k (max). In case 3, you will get bandwidths of upto 1.5 Mbps (full T1).
Case 3 is something i have in mind. i am looking at IP VPN service offer by my ISP. what are the router that support vpn that you recommand ??? If i wanted to have a firewall, how should i implement it ??
computers ---> switch ----> firewall ---> router or
would suggest the first block diagram which you have mentioned in your post in which your local lan is behind your Firewall and nothing is exposed to the outside world except the outside interface of the firewall which is by default connected to the outside world through the router.
Again there are few considerations here in getting your vpn connectvitiy,with the above scenario you can get you VPN tunnel dropped either in the router interface itself or into the firewall.
It again depends on the type of firewall whic you will be deploying out there.
Regarding the router model and the type i would better suggest to look on something like Cisco 1721 or above to cater your needs since you got to have T1 connectivity also i would suggest to lookin for a backup connectivity in case of some issues or probs with the main link.
Again the same 1721 can be a best bet to have the backup module(ISDN) installed in it .
We have 3 identical switches configured by someone else and would like to claim some of the Gigabit ports(G1/G2/G3/G4) for use on servers. When we try to change the wiring and configuration, we run in to connectivity issues. Attached is a des...
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
