  I am placing are public web server outside the firewall along with are
public ftp server, that way I am still protecting the inside lan from
outside attacks. It looks something like this

server | server

  There are two NIC's in the bastion host one that see's the outside and
the other see's this inside. Both routers have packet filtering and ACL's
setup to block known spamers and unwanted IP numbers dual to their
suspicious ways.
