If it acts as a HTTP-Server as well, this is really bad practice...
When the box ever gets compromised via public services, any intruder 
hooks right in your net and gets all the traffic with no expense.

If your interested in security, DON?T DO THAT !
A device which acts as a router/gateway/firewall should not offer 
services, at least not accessible via uncontrolled nets / Internet.
