Access DMZ from LAN and vice versa (DMZ Pin Hole) on Netgear FVX538
Posted on 2006-03-29
Just a quick question regarding the FVX538 and it's DMZ setup. I've looked through the manual and site, but found nothing.
I used to use Smoothwall and it has an option of setting up a "pin hole" from the DMZ to the LAN so that certain ports can be accessed on the LAN from the DMZ. This is what I need as my MySql server is on the LAN (192.168.1.x), but the Web Server is on the DMZ (192.168.2.x) but it does need access to the database.
Does the FVX538 have the ability to do this, and if so how?
Also I was trying to access my DMZ from my LAN but that was blocked too, likewise I need to access computers on the DMZ from the LAN (again Smoothwall allows LAN->DMZ and DMZ->LAN where specified). Is there any way this can be done as well as the other way around?
Just to clarify (if that made no sense at all)....
1. I need to get access from the DMZ to LAN on certain ports
2. I need to open the DMZ up so that the LAN can access it.
Basically the web server is on the DMZ and needs to stay there for security, but needs to have access to LAN port 3306 for MySql.
The LAN PC's need to see the Web Server on the DMZ to put files, etc onto it.
Can anyone help please?
