    I thought I read in one of the docs that it was an either/or thing.. that you
    couldnt have both.

    Hmm.. you mentioned NAT and that makes me think I might need a filter for
    this? Is this true or is the alteon able to handle this? How does the
    security of this play out, the idea is to have the real servers cut off from
    the internet except for the DNS functions. (we also plan to use the same
    setup with some web servers at some point)

    The documentation that I find from Nortel/Alteon pretty much sucks, does
    anyone know of a better source of information?
