 Subject:  Problem setting up DMZ for public IPs
 Date:  Mon, 12 Dec 2005 13:41:17 -0500
I've got a full Class C that i'm trying to put a monowall firewall (Pc CD) 
in front of, lets call my network class c:

- i've got 3 NICs setup as WAN LAN DMZ
- lets call my router connected to WAN
- my monowall
- my network layer 2 switch connected to DMZ port
- all my servers i want to have as public IP addresses.
- and my servers are
- all on a /24 mask
- for simplicity, lets say only ports 80 to pass through

how in the world do i set up my DMZ to allow it to have public IPs on it?
i cant figure out whether to use bridging, static routes, NAT, 1:1 NAT, etc

the other confusion i have, is what is the difference between the WAN LAN 
DMZ tabs on the web Rules GUI vs the WAN LAN DMZ "source" drop down menu. 
seems like an oxymoron that i can define a DMZ rule but specify the LAN port 
as the source.

thanks from a firewall n00b
