To DMZ or not DMZ ...
Posted on 2009-04-13
I'm running a network behind an RTP300 Linksys router. I have an FTP server setup on 192.168.1.10
I do have tcp 20/21 forwarded to this device, however it seems that FTP will not work unless I also enable DMZ on this host.
Linksys's description says this removes hardware firewall from that device - I have a software firewall enabled. So, is this system 'safe'?
Should I verify other ports/access are blocked on that device?
Is there a way to enable FTP to work with this router without enabling DMZ? I had this working a year ago on a WRT54G with no problem...
