My current network setup looks like the following:
ISP modem --> Cisco 2611xm --> managed 3550 switch --> vlans
Since I will be setting up a public facing web and email server, I decided that my network security needs improvement before they go live. I built a pfSense box which I would like to configure to perform Firewall, IPS, and IDS duties. I believe I have 3 options on its placement: before the router, after the router, or replacing the router with it. I would appreciate any insight and suggestions.
Current setup details:
Configured as a bridge just to perform the rj11 to rj45 hand-off
basic firewall functions
layer 3 enabled
inter vlan routing
Public servers (coming soon)
management PC (SNMP, Solarwinds, ect.)
