  • 1.  DMZ considerations

    I am just deploying a DMZ zone defined in my firewall.  Ideally I would like to only have lan traffic go into the DMZ zone.  I would like to run a host with VMware in the zone but have conflicting info with regards to how to operate the DMZ environment.  Is the best practice to create a tunnel (maybe timed intervals) to the lan in order to operate and administer the zone.  What is the best practice to backup the non domain computers in the DMZ, ideally I do not want to reference back to my main backup repository.  Let me know if you have any good ideas or practices that work best.

    There is a discussion here on this: ESXi and DMZ

    The conclusion is to keep the ESXi host internal while setting up the networking to create a DMZ zone.
