(private IP == your internal network such as

How to Setup a DMZ.

Here is an example DMZ setting for a web server

[1] Assign private IP address to your server in the DMZ e.g.

[2] on the menu: Firewall> NAT> Server NAT add the public IP address of 
the server (plus description if you want to do it properly)

[3] in the Services menu > Proxy ARP add the the public ip addresses (so 
that the WAN port can respond to all the public ip addresses)

[4] again in the Firewall menu > NAT > Inbound add the following rule
External address: public ip address of the server
Protocol: TCP (or as desired)
External port range from: POP(or as desired)
NAT IP: private ip address for server
Local port: POP (or as desired)

[5] tick the box that says auto add rules.
