Thanks for all the quick replies. Very helpful, esp the docs links. 
Initially I will only be using just a 'few' connections, about 4 to 6. 
Good point about 'stateful packet inspection' as at least one of the 
servers will be on my home network connecting to the internet via a 
netgear router.

Thanks again,
