Consulting for a company who has a completely jumbled network. There old IT guy was one who talked a lot but produced little. I won't go into that here, but do have one question. They have Public IPs on their internal servers instead of using an internal IP and NATing at a firewall or router (in this case). Basically they have 100 public IP addresses. Some are NAT'd at the router to point to internal IP address, but some servers (and a couple workstations) are just using the public IPs with the router as their gateway.

My gut tells me this is wrong, but I am not exactly sure of the implications (security, administration, etc.).

Any thoughts out there?

Thanks for the time.
