    THis is how my network is currently set up. (for those of you who
    monitor this board often have probably seen it... :) )

    Router ---> Firewall ----> External NIC -----> SBS Server (exchange,
    2003 domain, ISA) <------Internal Nic<-----Switch/Workstations

    I was told that there is no way to do NAT and VPN termination at the
    firewall (Cisco ASA) because of ISA on the SBS Server. I was hoping
    to use ISA since it came with SBS however, I would rather use the ASA.
    Is this correct that I would have to do NAT and VPN termination at the
    ISA server to get Exchange and everything to work? Would I be better
    off simply hooking my server to the switch and turning off ISA?

    Router ---> Firewall ----> Switch ---->SBS Server & Workstations

    Any opinions will be greatly appreciated.
