General discussion



By david ·
We have a computer in the DMZ that we need to drop files on occassionally for an application we are running. Currently we manually go over and drop the files onto the computer. Is there a way to go over the network securely to drop these files. We do have a Cisco 515E firewall and a Windows 2003 network. My main concern here is security and not opening any holes for hackers/virus/etc.

Thanks for the help,

The whole point of a DMZ

by JamesRL In reply to DMZ

is to allow you the ability to access computers in the DMZ from your internal network or the Internet, without creating a bridge. If you don't have direct access from your network, you don't have a DMZ, but a secure network segment for the internet.

In theory, its fairly easy to setup the securtity. The firewall between your network and the DMZ should be configured to let no sessions initiated by the DMZ(or the Internet) to pass through to your network. The firewall between the DMZ and the Internet should allow no traffic initiated by the DMZ or your network to pass through to the Internet. You should also consider intrusion detection software that would monitor traffic on both firewalls to look for anything outside of predefined norms.
