network and security setup
What I am trying to achieve.
-Workstation for 3D Modeling and Rendering, Web Hosting(about 3 months down the road), and XMBC.
-Network firewall using Devil
My original design thoughts for doing this were/are:
3 750gb drives in RAID 6 (personal files, work files and web hosting)
4 1.5tb drives for media storage split into seperate partitions for each type of media
Cheapo desktop with devil for firewall.
Because of the whole piracy issue on media i would prefer if possible that the storage drives for media were not even connected to the WS. But then how do i connect them to the XMBC? I'm thinking that the drives are on a second machine connected to the firewall. I run the XMBC in vmware and network the drives. Would this work?
