The plan is to just remove the machine from the circuit. Instead of
having a cable to the machine from the first switch and then another
cable from the machine to the second switch, the plan is to just replace
that with a single cable between the two switches and revert to how we
are now.

Budget . I have a very limited one, and if I lose this machine to the
firewall, I then have less resources available for hosting.
