comment Controlling traffic on a small subnet
I can. Then how do I connect my servers with IPs in the same subnet as that routed port?

comment Controlling traffic on a small subnet
The biggest issue is that an internal computer can't go to www.myserver.com, as that resolves to the external IP. Similar issue with configuring the mail server. You'd have to point your browser to the inernal IP, add a custom entry to the host file to do point myserver.com to the internal IP, or use some other kludge. In addition to having to install the kludge on all the computers, you have the issue of laptops which might be on the internal network or might be taken home and connected to a home network. If you have things munged to work inside, they no longer work outside.

comment 1000Base-X layer 2/MAC address details
Thanks for the response. We have a large network (over 1200 devices at this location) and I've checked a number of switches - about ten or twelve of each type. In every case where we have a copper trunk, I find the MAC addresses of the trunk ports in the MAC address table of the opposite switch. In every case where we have a fiber trunk, I do not find the MAC address on the opposite switch. The switches are running DTP, STP, CDP, etc., so there is definitely traffic flowing directly between the switches, which I would assume would use the switch interface as the source port.
