I'm the administrator of a network with approxcimately 100 workstations and
8 servers (NT4/W2k). Today we use an ISDN line to connect to the Internet.
Mail and DNS services are provided by our ISP and that gives us some
trouble now and then.
As of next month we will have a direct connection and therefore I would
like to build a nice firewall/router solution based on Linux. I want to
isolate our present network so that it is not seen from the "outside". I
would like to take care of our mail and DNS services. Webaccess should be
possible from some our workstations.
When it comes to mail I want a mailserver that is our official
"mail.company.com" and this server shall forward all our mail to an
Exchange server behind the firewall. Of course no relaying should be
allowed by others.
I'm aware that it involves some new hardware, but it is no problem, we want
to build this the right way the first time.
I have had some experience with RedHat but any distribution will do.
Can you suggest a solution? Or point me in the right direction?
