Gateway + NAS


Hello,

My hope is to build a gateway + NAS server. I know that their is many more efficient ways to get that, but I'm working to become a sysadmin so this machine will be as a sand-box as a useful server for myself. I only learned virtualization with WinServ 2008 R2 + Hyper-V, I'de like to change !

Hardware (can change, I didn't buy it yet) :
- i3 3.3 GHz
- 8 Go RAM DDR3
- 64 Go SSD (for 3 OS)
- 2x 1 To raid 1 (soft or hard ?)
- 2x RJ45

OS :
- Host : Slackware (my main distro) + Virtual Box, or Ubuntu + Xen. This OS should only have access to LAN interface. Is that possible ?
- VM1 : IPCop, with WAN and LAN RJ45
- VM2 : FreeNAS, with LAN RJ45 only and the 2 hard drives

So as you can see, my objective is to split up gateway and NAS to get my datas secured buy IPCop. Does my assembly work as I imagine it ?

Thank you to all contributors !

Using a virtual machine tends to be as if you were using a real computer. In almost every step or setup, you can take any "how to" and use it in your situation. What one does is route the traffic to the VM and out of the VM. Just remember that VM's have a few ways to connect networking. Each way requires some thinking and knowledge about the VM. Almost all have a NAT feature. Some basic VM's don't have a fully working virtual router in nat mode.
