I have a Mac OS X Leapord Server v10.6.8 installed on an Xserve and currently have things set up in the following order:
ISP --> Router --> Switch --> Server --> iMac.
I also have a Power Mac G5 with OS X 10.5.8 configured as a server. I was wondering if it was possible to configure the PowerMac as a gateway, to serve as a firewall; blocking access from outside coming in
ISP --> Router --> Server --> Switch --> Server --> iMac
I had looked it up on the internet, but I could not find anything useful.
If it is possible:
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of configuring the machine as a gateway?
- How can it be accomplished?
Edited: Forgot to mention the main server. Also, I have already installed an ethernet card in addition to the ethernet port on the Power Mac.
