Webserver and DMZ
Posted on 2007-10-09
We are getting ready to open an online store for our company. We need to be able to interface it with our back office ERP (Microsoft Dynamics GP). Therefore we will need to host this box on our on network (as opposed to hosting with a webhost) so that the online store can link to the ERP.
Now my question: What do I need to do this? I am assuming we will need to create a DMZ. We have a firewall setup at our main HQ that acts as our firewall and VPN. I do not think this firewall has a DMZ port, so what do I need. Also, how do I make sure that everything is secure on the DMZ?
I have read several articles on here that make the DMZ a little more clear, but I need some help with my exact application. Here is what we currently have setup:
Internet -> ISP T1 Router -> Firewall / VPN -> Linksys Wireless Router -> Linksys Switch -> Corporate Network (i.e. servers, pcs, printers, etc.)
If we need to purchase new firewall what should we purchase. I am not a big Cisco fan due me not knowing ACL. Maybe you need some more information but we can start from here. I look forward to your help.
