    Default General configuration question from a noob

    Hello all,
    I have my untangle server set up in bridge mode. I have both wireless and wired clients. I would like to set it up like this:

    Cable Modem ---> Untangle Server Bridged ---> Asus Wireless 4 port Router ---> Dell 24 port managed switch.

    The UTM appears to work just fine in this configuration but I was wondering if there are downsides and or vulnerabilities/outside threats in the setup?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thank you,
    Rich

    To start a little discussion here:
    If the ASUS does the NAT, then this setup is potentially flawed - you lose visibility, bandwidth control won't work properly, etc.
    If Untangle does NAT - why do you need the Asus to be a "router", better setup Untangle as the router, and use the Asus as just a wireless access point.
    If you're worried about your posture - run an nmap from the outside and see what's visible.

    No way, sure you get only 1 public ip address from your ISP, in your design need at least 2 (1 for untangle and 1 for router).

    For me the better choice is

    modem
    |
    |
    External wan
    Untangle in router mode
    Internal
    |
    |.......................................... |
    |...................................... wan port
    main switch-------lan1 port WI FI router)))))))wi fi
    |
    |
    lan

    In bold devices
    In Italic ports
    ...dots=SPACE BLANK (TAB not work )

    Never put Untangle outside your border NAT device. Yes, it can be done, no it won't work properly.
