interconnecting Snow Leopard Servers between 2 sites

By Jay50 ·
Hello my name is Jay

I know my macintoshes and network pretty well. I know the OSX 10.4 Server. but I have a new challenges here. I would like some guidience here. Details please for network topology.

My goal is to get the fastest and the most secure VPN connection between both sites. One site will host an email server and filemaker database. The other site will access those services via VPN.
Unless your recommending some other type of topology connection?

HERE GOES:
I have to interconnect (2) separate sites both of which are comcast sites. Now each site has the Snow Leopard Server. How should I interconnect these server between sites? Now they use VPN to access because a filemaker database is being access to one site.

How should I connect the Snow OSX Server on each LAN?
#1
Should both Servers be directly connected to ISP using one of the (2) ethernet ports. Then the second port connects to a switch and feed the 40 in-house Macintoshes?
Then use Server for NAT, Firewall, VPN and email setup? And the Router can do DHCP.

#2
Or should I connect Router to Router between sites then the Router to switch in-house then connect Server and clients off switch? Use Router for DHCP??
What about NAT, Firewall, VPN and email setup??

My goal is to get the fastest and the most secure VPN connection between both sites. One site will host an email server and filemaker database. The other site will access those services via VPN.
Unless your recommending some other type of topology connection?

Have not bought any routers yet. Which Comcast speed should I get?

Thanks So Much?
