I hope you mean THROUGH your firewall, not OUTSIDE your firewall.  I
would NOT in any way, shape or form plug a server directly to the
internet without a firewall between them, and that goes doubly so if
you plan on having that machine ALSO connected to your internal

However, if you mean connecting THROUGH your firewall, then by all
means, go for it.  That's how most places work... one connection goes
through the world, one connection is for internal access (at least
that's how every datacenter I've ever been in worked).
