What 'other 2 networks'?

You didn't mention two schools before, or how they might be connected
to the
rest of the network. You haven't mentioned if these schools are on
the same
subnet or not, and I have no real idea if you need to allow or deny
access
to them.

No the schools have their own subnets and I believe these subnets aremanaged by the router. I do however use their DNS servers as I have my
DNS
servers using them as forwarders


The internet traffic will have to route to your BMgr server's public
IP
address. The PIX simply has to allow that traffic through to you.
Perhaps
the simplest thing would be to have the PIX allow ALL inbound and
outbound
traffic to the BMgr server's public IP address, and let the BMgr
server
handle packet filtering.


You are being a bit vague with important details like "At the present
time
there is a route created on the router for this network." and " Once
the
border manager is setup this route will be removed and all traffic
must
arrive via the new route created for Border Manager". I simply have
no idea
what you have in mind here.



As mentioned my client uses an entire Class C Block. For the Border
Manager
I request one new IP address and Gateway in a new subnet.This new
gateway
has been configured on the router and the route has been added to therouter. As mentioned the router is not in my control however I am told
that
the route has been created and it appears to work. This new IP address
will
be configured on the Nic that will be my public nic for the Border
Manager.
This should allow me to keep the current class c block intact minus
their
default gateway which I will change on all servers and desktops to
point to
the new IP address given to the Border Manager. If I understand
correctely
this should mean that all traffic on my subnet will go through the
Border
Manager, and all traffic arriving for this subnet will pass through
the
router and be routed to the Border Manager. The intent of this Border
Manger
is to stop all ICMP packets to my subnet. In addition I need to allow
http
both incoming and outgoing so clients can browse the internet. I need
to
allow email, and maybe FTP and PCAnywhere. As for other control with
Border
Manager this will come later
