Ubuntu in the DMZ


Im trying to set up a web server on my DMZ to handle both email and web hosting. I moved it to the DMZ in my router, then tried putting the static public IP I got from my ISP into /etc/network/interfaces under eth0:1, but its not pingable from the outside world. How do I fix this?

well this all depends on the rest of your network infrastructure, routing, firewalling etc.., which you've said nothing about. Your ISP might need to make config changes too.

No idea...none of us here know how you've got your DMZ set up, what firewall(s) you have in place, what protocols you're filtering, etc. Could be any one of a thousand things.

As a rule, though, ICMP is one of the first protocols you turn off from the outside world, to prevent someone running a ping sweep, to see what devices are there. Once they get addresses, they can start to dig deeper. You say you can't ping it...does it work otherwise??
