    Default DMZ / Internal / 6.2

    Can the DMZ port function as a second internal network? I have 2 internal lan's and I would like untangle to route between them and handle the wan connection for both as well.

    Thanks.

    Yes. DMZ is a rather generic name that is used because that's how most people would use it. You can use your DMZ interface as a second internal connection or as a second external connection, in addition to its stated purpose. You can just use it for one purpose at a time though.

    mdh,

    As an added question to this in the wan failover module and a 3 NIC machine, the external and the DMZ are used a WAN connections for redundancy. Can 4 NIC's be used and have redundant LAN and WAN? How many NIC's can untangle support or will recognize?

    Thanks

    From what I understand, Untangle can support 6 NIC ports

    OK thanks. I have a 3 NIC setup here and was doing some playing around on the bench. I was able to get it to do DHCP on both the internal and DMZ interfaces... but still cannot ping past the WAN interface from the DMZ... where its no problem from the internal. I must be missing something in the config.

    The linux kernel has a 10 interface limit, 2 are reserved for the UVM, and 1 more is reserved for OpenVPN. This leaves 7 interfaces you can have in UT.

    As for configuring DMZ to be another internal...

    1.) Set it static
    2.) Configure a NAT policy
    3.) kick the packet filter to pass certain traffic types (DNS, and ICMP)
