The reason I have a captive portal enabled in the DMZ is because it is being
used as a public hotspot for wi-fi internet access. My LAN is only used for
my employees so I have no need for a portal in there. Obviously, I needed
an area to put the hotspot so that it was off my LAN and the DMZ seemed to
be like the best logical place. I am wanting to add a few servers into the
DMZ now (i.e. web, dns, mail, etc...).
It will probably make more sense now to add another NIC to the box setting
up a second DMZ for the servers...
