LEA denying access to our firewall for configuration
We're building a new domain currently, for deployment over the summer, with any luck and we'd like to do some testing of the new domain safe in the knowledge that we can't do any harm to our current network.
We'd like to separate out our hardware LANs, but retain internet connectivity to both, so we asked the LEA to set up a new port on our Juniper SSG5 firewall to just serve internet and deny access to the rest of our LAN, which we'd run a little 5 port switch off to our new mini domain for testing.
They've described it as a "project" though, and can't help us with any great haste, so we're quickly running out of time to test and iron out any issues before the summer. They suggested using IPCop as an alternative, but that involves using another machine for which we'd have to buy another NIC, more money!
Would the Juniper SSG5 do what we proposed easily? Should they give us access to the configuration of that unit as we actually bought the thing off them and we pay for their services, ie. we're the customer and should get what we want!!
