Request for technical advice before deciding on what to buy

Your post

As we are planning to put our database on our website for clients to view their valuation reports, we would need to check the followings:

1. There will be around 200 active clients who may visit our website to view their reports, what will we need? The FileMaker Server or Server Advanced?

2. We will send a path to our clients by email directing them to our logon page. They will ONLY be able to see their own valuation reports. Can we achieve this be making certain security settings in the FileMaker server?

3. What will be the internet bandwidth that we will need for hosting such a database server? 10M? 50M? 100M?

4. In order to keep our internal network away from any risk, we are advised to set up a separate broadband line for hosting the FileMaker Server. As we are currently using a Window based network, will it be better if we put our FileMaker Sever in a Mac instead of a PC. Are there any other problems that we may need to consider?
