Good point, I guess I'm suffering from incremental additions over the 
last 4 years and no real look at the overall architecture. I'm not sure 
what would work best.
I have a T1 to the big bad internet world via a Linksys RV016 router and 
this used to deal with everything. The main server provides DNS, apache, 
ssh, smtp, pop and imap - all needing internet accessibility and then 
samba for file server that is only required locally. Then along came 
asterisk server and a Netgear PoE vlan switch to run the snom VoIP / SIP 
phones, with the * needing internet access but only one NIC. Then along 
came a 1G ethernet switch to improve access speeds to samba, hence the 
two NICs on the same subnet - the 100Mb for the internet facing services 
(although all these services also need to be accessed locally) and the 
1Gb NIC for file serving to the five windoze clients. Then I wanted to 
add firewall to the server to deal with things like tripping up the port 
22 script kiddies and then tripped up on the samba...... Confused yet?  
I guess some careful thought needed to design this appropriately.
I was considering having the server do IP forwarding, but this may not 
be smart as it already does too much. Thanks for the questions - helps 
me focus on the real issues.
Rob - p.s. suggestions welcome
