Newbie in Linux pain
I have a mixed Linux /Win32 network and here’s what it looks like:
Currently I have a broadband connection running to my ‘Smooth Wall’ red NIC – Then I have my ‘Smooth Wall’ green NIC (192.168.x.1) running to a ‘D-Link’ switch. From the ‘D-Link’ switch I run my network (192.168.x.100 – 110), the ‘E-Smith’ server (192.168.x.2) and a ‘D-Link’ WAP (192.168.x.99).
I currently use the E-Smith as a storage server for my internal network and ideally I would like to make the data fully available internally yet safe from the web.
Everything currently works
What I would like to do is to run a website, mail server and FTP from my E-Smith and allow limited remote connection to it.
The E-Smith is set up with all the above listed services running.
• What I need to know is what ports on the 'Smooth wall' do I have to open and how?
• How do I port forward from the Smooth Wall to the E-Smith?
• What are the best ports to forward to on the E-Smith and why?
• What are the advantages of using a third ‘Orange DMZ’ NIC in my Smooth Wall and what is the best way to make it effective?
Any help would be great - I like to dig... so even a point in the correct direct would be excellent.
