    If I install my servers with two nics, and I want to do nat from the public to the private interface (where I configured ispconfig), could I then still use the firewall of ispconfig to do the natting, or should I install another-one (smoothwall, guarddog or anotherone) to do the natting and portforwarding. I've read that bastille is used with ispconfig, Is it possible to edit it with a good gui (which I would prefer since I don't know the rules syntax yet). Can somebody advise me on a good firewall with a good gui to do the above?
    Thanks in advance.

    The ISPConfig firewall does not support the NAT. But generally it is not recommended to run your hosting server and the firewall on the same machine. A cheap hardqare router is in most cases the better solution then to run two nics with firewall on the same server.
