using this configuration makes your your firewall protecting your internal
network useless...

You should remove the nic interface between your ftp server and your
internal network...

Subject: Question about dmz security

I need an opinion on a current design implementation in place.  We have
an ftp server sitting in our dmz.  This box has two nics - one is
plugged into the dmz hub and one is plugged into our network.  I think
this is a security risk and we should just allow internal users access
to the box via the firewall by opening the port instead of having dual
nics.  they do not see a security risk. maybe i am just too new at this
and need some education.  what is the "best" way to implement this

Thank you
Jenn Fountain
