It is not, as you might have noticed, I work for a university. The servers
I have on my mind are completely inaccessible from outside our
'private' network. I need another measure of protection to eliminate
access to services which could not be disabled (ports: 135, 147, 139
and 445) and to have some reliable logging facility. We have
another boxes to do the firewall/router work and they really do not
run Windows... :).

I do not plan to use Windows servers to do firewall, routing/nat work,
it seems to me as a really silly idea ;).

So do I.
