I have a small network with a proprietary software program we use. The software company requires we setup a web server on our network for clients to access data. Our firewall is a Netgear UTM9. We have two public IP addresses. One extra for the web server.
How do I set up the web server in the UTM so people can access the web server? Unless I am not seeing it, I don't see a place for 1-1 NAT and if I set it up on the DMZ, the web server won't be able to talk to our main file server which is required for the software company.
Ideas?

Wouldn't you start by allowing tcp to port 80 and 443 to that IP, and from the 'inside' allowing that IP any out on port 80 and 443?

I'm just not sure how to show two public ips. One for my regular network and one for my web server.
Thanks for the reply.

You want your internal network public facing?  This is a bad idea.  

It's possible we're not speaking of the same thing at this point.

Maybe. Thanks for your answer. Unfortunately, we have a proprietary program that the company requires an internal server to be used as a web server. We have built it as such (not our file server) to be used by this program and certain users as a web server. It does need to be seen from the outside.

I need to know how to configure the firewall to allow the webserver ip address to the inside without interfering with the traffic that is typically allowed (RDP, VPN, ETC.)

Oh, you allow TCP port 80, 443 to the IP, and then the same back out again.  TCP and ports will keep it separate from RDP, VPN, and other protocols, which also use their own ports.
