RRas server placement


G

Guest

I have just configured an Rras server for remote pptp vpn connections.
During the installation, it prompted for the specification of an interface
that connects directly to the internet. This would entail one interface
being connected straight to the internet(bypassing the firewall)and one
interface being connected to the local network. Is this the recommended
placement of the server. The other way to do this is to have the interface
that connects directly to the internet/around the firewall behind the
firewall perhaps on the dmz. Which of these configurations is the most
common. Thank you

RRAS behind firewall is more secure.
