i have an ipfilter/ipnat box, that i'm using to protect an apache webserver.
the machine is 4.7-RELEASE-p3 FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE-p3 #1: Mon Aug 11 18:27:06 CDT 2003. the machine is a dell optiplex gx260 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.40GHz 512 mb of ram. it's been doing a fine job.
my boss asked me today whether he could stick his two windows 2000 domain controllers behind the ipf/ipnat box. the domain controllers are pretty busy. they get about 4000-5000 authentication requests on a typical day. while i was at it, i was thinking of putting my mysql server behind the firewall.
my question is - do i need to upgrade my hardware? or is my setup sufficient to handle the 3 extra machines?
