Should I move our web server to the DMZ?
Posted on 2006-06-06
Currently we are running a web server on a Windows XP Pro PC behind our firewall. It is currently running apache and mysql to support our sites. Our current network configuration is
internet ->router->Pix 515e->switch-> file servers, web server, exchange server, pcs, etc...
I am thinking about purchasing the dmz addin card for the Cisco Pix and putting the web servers in the dmz. Would this be ideal or is there a better configuration? Also, would a Watchguard X500 or X700 be more beneficial to me than the Pix?
