    I have recently rented a single dedicated server. It’s internet facing with a handful of IPv4 addresses available.

    I would like to setup a visualized exchange environment/domain controller (new domain). The server comes pre-installed/licensed for Server 2012 Datacenter Edition. So I know I’m OK to setup various hyper-v VM’s for the EX and DC servers.

    My concerns are that there is no hardware firewall in front of this box that I can administer myself. Therefore, I was thinking about whether I could do something funky with the visualization host with firewall/NAT/routing etc. Could it act as the firewall protection for the VM’s it hosts?

    Any advice would be great.
