I don't really understand what you mean, with "having other servers set up the same machine"....

    If you mean having other services running on the same box as the proxy, that is ok to do.

    Dolda,

    Basically, what I was asking was if it is allowed to have other servers like NFS, Apache, Samba and etc while doing the routing and packet filtering with iptables.

    Oh, yeah, that's certainly possible. On my router, I run FTP, sendmail and the POP3/IMAP access daemons. Not to mention SSH.

    Btw., note the difference between proxy and router. "Proxy" is almost exclusively used for referring to an HTTP gateway. A gateway is generally a on a higher level than a router, interpreting more complex and specific protocols like HTTP, SMTP and so on, while a router is generally a low-level contraption that passes packets between two networks.
    Not a big deal, just wanted you to know. ;-)
