Hi there,
i'm reading some documentation and they mention bastion host and dmz as something different  but yet when i look at the diagrams is seems to be the same.  Can anyone shed some light on it.
thanks

The DMZ is a network location that can include multiple devices, services, and touchpoints - it can serve many purposes but is a "logical area".  A bastion host is a specific device that exists on the public side of the DMZ to provide host services such as a proxy for some type of service that can not function properly instead the firewall.
