How to configure network correctly to allow for public facing web server installed on an internal use server

Hi all,


I plan on having a small public facing web site to allow for licensing of a client app sitting on the server I use for internal use.

I understand the best way to do this is through the DMZ. I have not done this before and I want to ensure I do this properly, is the attached diagram correct or should I be going in a completely different way?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That will technically work, but it’s probably overkill for the second Nic and multiple routers.

Usually a DMZ is just a vLAN routed by a firewall. So a single router/firewall (think asa for ciscoland), has a wan port, a lan port, and let’s call it a DMZ port (an internal subnet not on the main LAN).
So LAN to DMZ traffic is nat/firewalled, WAN to DMZ traffic is nat/firewalled, and WAN to LAN traffic is nat/firewalled.
