I am setting up a FBSD 5.2.1 box for use as an HTTP/SMTP server in a small office.

We have a ADSL internet connection served through a Linksys router setup as the 
primary gateway on IP  Our ISP has allocated a non-filtered fixed IP 
address to us.  I have set-up the FreeBSD box with a fixed IP of subnet, and configured the router to place the server in the DMZ, i.e. direct 
all incoming traffic to it.

My question is should I setup the FBSD machine to recognize the fixed internet IP 
address allocated to us by the ISP as an Alias on the interface card?  Everything 
seems to work fine even I don't do this.

Thanks for any advice.
