    This is a "plain text" message and there is no diagram.

    It is better to use private IP bocks in the DMZ of a Back-toBack DMZ
    such as this. But you can use public IP#s if you want to.

    To VPN with a B2B DMZ you must create two VPN tunnels. The first one
    runs between the two routers. The second tunnel runs inside the first
    one and goes between the user and the internal resource.

    Here are some articles on the subject. They are centered around using
    MS ISA Server, but the overall principles are the same in any
    Watchout for the line-wrap on these links:

    I have no idea what you are trying to describe there.

    You're trying to depend on routers and ACLs to control
    everything,..not good. Use things that way they were meant to be used.
    Routers and firewalls control *initial* access to a network. Once
    access to a LAN is granted at that level the firewalls or routers are
    done with thier job, from then on security is controlled by the LAN's
    own security systems (User accounts, User Groups, File System
    Permissions, ect). Just because a user is allowed to get to a certain
    LAN by the router of firewall doesn't mean they automatically can see
    or grab whatever they want within that LAN. Resource access within
    LANs is controlled by Domain Controllers, user accounts, Filesystem

    Forget the duel-homed workstations.
    You're worry about something that doesn't even happen. Don't forget
    the significance of subnets and routers. LAN broadcasts (polution)
    doesn't cross routers. That's why Cisco often refers to a router as a
    "Broadcast Firewall" because that kind of stuff doesn't go across them
    except for things that you have to go out of your way to make it

    There is no way to deal with a wide open broad question like that in a
    news group message.
