it's the most secure situation

it's safer. I mean it's safer to allow access to every host from outside
via ssh (ftp, www no in second subnet). It's cause you give no more
than single host root password in oposiotion to access to whole net
when you logging to every host via firewall.

For truth I think that you should shut ssh on firewall
and allow connection between outside world and ftp,www servers
via it only.

not now yet. may be in next months. I don't think 2.4 is stable and secure yet
enough to use it on firewalls.
may be I'm wrong.
