DMZ and Port forwarding
Posted on 2004-11-29
Question, in preperation for an Exchange migration, our current exchange 5.5(x.x.x.5) is setup on the DMZ network. The Sonicwall firewall, also our dhcp server, has the IP range of x.x.x.5 to x.x.x.25 as the DMZ zone. Now if I wanted to take x.x.x.5 and turn on port forwarding for SMTP how would that work? Since x.x.x.5 is in the DMZ, isnt this already exposed to the public internet?
Should I remove this range from the DMZ scope and then add x.x.x.5 as rule for port forwarding? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
