This is the better option, having all traffic destined for the ISDN link
going via the fileserver isn't worthwhile (and will be an extra load on
it), the only reason you would do this is if you were to have a second
firewall here to provide extra security. But since the fileserver may
well be as critical as any machine on the network, it's not worth it.
