I'm after a bit of advice on how to setup my home network.
We've got the following scenario:
our house is split over 2 levels and each level has its own patch panel/switch with (ethernet) lines into each room and
one line going down into the basement. the idea at the time was that each level can be its own independent unit.
I'm looking at the following setup:
put the DSL modem in the basement and feed the two levels. The thing is that i have NAS system where i want to share
media filas and some personal files accross the home network and i want to setup our own little CMS system... The CMS would be
on a ubuntu server running various virtual appliances for db, app server etc.
I don't really want the NAS server to be accessed at all from the internet and only really from the ubuntu server and its virtual
ideally i would like to grant access to the NAS on IP or mac address basis to be really sure...
i've been looking at the netgear pro safe dual http://support.netgear.com/app/products/model/a_id/2425
it seems like it could do what i
want, but i only know enough about network security to get me into trouble.
I'm unsure whether a single router could even do the job or whether its better physically separate NAS and server
in a type of subnet behind its own router ...
appreciate any ideas.
