A DMZ is a seperate network from your LAN that should be locked down tight
as it is exposed to the internet. As a rule of thumb ANY box that sits in a
DMZ should be patched with the latest security fixes. Also any AND all
unnecessary daemons should be disabled.

Here is a link with a decent explaination of DMZ's:


That said, as for firewall rules you should allow out only the ports needed
from a server to the web.


Outbound rules:

webserverA allow port 80 out
webserverB allow port 443 out

NAT rules:

NAT IP to webserverA
NAT IP to webserverB

Inbound rules:

allow 80 from any to webserverA
allow 443 from any to webserverB

Now as for your LAN segment to the DMZ rules:

allow ANY on LAN to DMZ (you can go crazy and allow only port level access
here also)
