I am currently planning a move (bring an oursourced hosting overseas to the
US). The basics are as follows
inet rtr -->segment-->fw--->BIG IP--->IPS---->web
The questions I have are:
1/ Someone has recently mentioned the idea of using private adressing
bewteen the inet rtr and the firewall, with
public adressing on the web. What are the pros and cons?
2/ I was under the impression that we used NAT to "hide" the webserver for
protection (obsfucation) as well as
the fw rules to protect it. Comments?
3/ My research shows I need to have specfic certs (Apache and one other) for
*each* webserver behind the Big IP.
Anyone have any experience with F5 Big ip 1500s?
Thanks in advance,
