Trouble with firewall
Posted on 2004-08-31
Hello, I'm hoping I've got my question in the right spot here. I'm trying to install a firewall that is to sit between our public Linux box with Open Excahnge server on it and our private network. (192.168.1.x public and 192.168.0.x private) It's a small network so we picked up a netgear ProSafe wireless firewall router printer server combo.
I've set it up so that the internet port of the ProSafe connects to the Port on the linux box that is addressed for the 192.168.0.x private subnet. The other two ports/NIC's face the internet router on 192.168.1.x. The problem is that the connections on the lan of the ProSafe cannot get through the Internet port.
I'm without a doubt new at this Prosafe firewall. I've configured the firewall on the linux box for the 192.168.1.x subnet. I just want to make sure if somebody gets into the linux box they go no further.
The 192.168.0.x nic in the linux box works fine when it plugged in around the router.
Thanks in Advance.
