Linux Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) Ethernet Interface Requirements and Configuration

Demilitarized zone, used to secure an internal network from external access. You can use Linux firewall to create DMZ easily. There are many different ways to design a network with a DMZ. The basic method is to use a single Linux firewall with 3 Ethernet cards. The following simple example discusses DMZ setup and forwarding public traffic to internal servers.

Consider the following DMZ host with 3 NIC:
[a] eth0 with 192.168.1.1 private IP address - Internal LAN ~ Desktop system
[b] eth1 with 202.54.1.1 public IP address - WAN connected to ISP router
[c] eth2 with 192.168.2.1 private IP address - DMZ connected to Mail / Web / DNS and other private servers
