Small Business Router

nuSkool
Hello,

I am looking for a router that would allow me to assign a different external ip address to different internal machines. We have 5 static ip addresses and I would like static ip address1 to go to OWA access for instance and static ip address2 to go to say a development machine. Is there any good routers out there that would allow this at an affordable price for a small business.

I would appreciate any suggestions for good security practices in this type of implementation also. What should I be aware of? what should I do? What shouldn't I do?

Thank you

    You'd be better off assigning those addresses at the server/workstation and programming them on the machines themselves rather than trying to assign a specific IP address to a specific MAC address, via DHCP.

    I am ordering one this week I read up on it and it has an impressive amount of features for a reasonable price. I am going to get the one with the enhanced os as this is the one I need for one-to-one nat.

    Where can I find a tutorial or a guide on how to do this? The sonic wall is less than $300 so it's not a bad option from my point of view.

    Also how secure is this solution? wouldn't they have to be directly attached to the T1 line for this to work?

    I just did a bunch of research on which routers are best for what...

    A good cheap solution for what you want to do would be this one:
