Currently, I have an NTL broadband modem which connects to a Smoothwall
box and then onto a switch. From this switch comes three nodes. All
I am thinking of removing the Smoothwall box, in order to experiement
with software firewalls, but I am not sure that the modem can be
connected to the switch direct.
To save me the inconvenience of discovering that this cannot be done
after making lots of changes I would like to ask:
Does this work or do I need a router (which is what I understand the
Smoothwall box to be) in between?
Wait to hear
