I have a DSL modem to a sonic wall router then out to several computers. I want to be able to run one computer in front of the firewall to avoid a user from accessing RDC to a company server. My question is: Can I come from the modem to a multi port switch which will then go to the lone terminal and also the router? Will I be able to access the web from all terminals by doing this? If not how can I get web access to a terminal then put all the other terminals behind the firewall router?

Alright, is your Company server you RDC to on the same network? OR is out on the internet? If it is out on the internet you need to look at how to secure your end by using policies to disable access to the mstsc.exe file (remote desktop client) for all users but those you authorize. Even if it is internal you should still look at policies to prevent use of remote desktop client by unauthorized users.

yeah, a better description of exactly what you're wanting to end up with is going to be a big help.

as previously stated, if you don't give someone access to RDP then they can't use it.

does your router have a DMZ port? or the ability to add a DMZ module (not familiar with sonicwall equipment)
