Hello- I am an IT student starting a project paper. Could any of you proffesional aministrators give me some ideas on a basic design for this scenario?
I am building a LAN for a staffing agency on a Server 2008 R2 platform. It is a small business with 50 workstations split into 2 subnets. I'm thinking a couple of DC's also running DHCP/DNS/VPN with a WSUS server and an application server running some ERP software. Also maybe a copy of IIS on a server for the website?
I do not know where to start as far as getting the internal network secure. A DMZ possibly and how that look on a network map? A layer three switch to add 4 branch offices later a create a VLAN maybe? Any ideas on the best hardware to use?
Any ideas or suggestions of how this little LAN would look would be highly appreciated. I have no hands-on experience; I have been studying networking but I am a complete novice when it comes to the real world. I could be totally missing the whole thing. If so set me straight and tell me the best solution; it must be a Windows network however
