I would like to know your opinion about a firewall configuration issue:
We plan to configure our firewall management module (checkpoint firewall NG)
on a server that shares its network connection (subnet) with other servers
used for management purposes (SNMP, BACKUPS, .) in order to save one
firewall network interface.
Internet ---- FW ------ subnet 1 Server that hosts the FW Management Module
L----- subnet 1 Management server 1 (SNMP)
L----- subnet 1 Management server 2 (BACKUPS)
I understand that having a separate network interface for the firewall
management module is a better practice.
Nevertheless, this configuration is cost effective and has an impact on the
number of available network interfaces for other needs.
What are your recommendations?
