FTP-server in DMZ or LAN? (Fast Ethernet in DMZ)
Posted on 2011-09-14
I just bought the new cisco ASA 5505. When I wanted to configure the DMZ for my FTP-server I realized that the ASA 5505 only has 7 Fast-Ethernet Ports and no gigabit ports. Currently the FTP-server is connected to a gigabit-port on the switch (without DMZ).
What would be your pick?
1. Just put the FTP-server in the LAN on gigabit speed.
2. Put the FTP-server on the DMZ-interface of the ASA 5505, but then internally the
speeds of the transfers will drop.
Thanks for your advice! The previous years the FTP-server was active, it was always running in the LAN-network.. (I just took over the network).
