FTP Deployment (DMZ)

FTP Deployment (DMZ)

FTP Deployment (DMZ)

Hello All,

Just started a new company and noticed a security hole in our network. Our FTP server (Windows 2003) is placed in our LAN with 2 ip's (Public and private). The Cisco ASA is doing a Nat static mapping from public to private ip. Internal clients access the FTP thru a SMB shared, which compromises our network if the FTP gets hacked. Ideal solution, is move the FTP to the DMZ, but I don't want internal clients being able to access it thru a SMB shared, but rather the way external clients will access it (Browser / FTP Client. Any suggestions or links? Thank you for your assistance!

RE: FTP Deployment (DMZ)

I left one thing out, which is a given, deny access to external clients to internal network.
