I just noticed that your ISP has assigned you a /28 prefix.

Is all of this yours, or are you on a shared network
segment? If it is yours, and you plan on using it, you'll want to set
things up like the following. If it is all yours (88.18 - 88.30) and you
didn't request it, I'd sure be interested to know who is giving away
/28's nowadays when the client didn't even request it ;)

	    |	  \		|_____________<pc>
	    |       \
         <server1>  <server2>

...Not depicted, but I'd recommend a firewall for anything between the
gateway and the ISP.
