Setting up a network

By porknar ·
I have been given the duty to setup our network. I am not a network administrator or any of the such. I do know a little about tcpip and some other configuration settings. Our existing setup is as follows. We have a Efficient Networks speed stream 5100 DSL modem which is plugged into a linksys BEFSR41 router, which is plugged into a Dell Powerconnect 2324 Unmanaged switch, which all XP sp2 workstations & win 2003 Small business server standard are plugged into. I basicly plugged everything in and it worked. Now I am wondering if I set this up correctly, or if I could set it up to be more effecient. Maybe connect it differently or some thing. I also would like to be able to moniter our users.

How I did my SBS 2003 network

by dduck10 In reply to Setting up a network

First let me start by saying I have been a MS guy forever. SBS is the best thing MS has come out with in years. 1. Add a second Nic to the server. 2. Internet on one nic and intranet on the other. "Firewall #1" on the Nic #2 attached your Powerconnect 2324. Those are the only changes I would make to your system. Other than setting up workstation machine accounts, Anti-virus, desktop backups, ect.
