Multi-Homed systems security implications

pts.

I'm looking for guidance on the security implications of Multi-Homed systems located in a DMZ. The second NIC would be used for Maintenance or Backups, but would be screened from the normal Internal LAN traffic (for admins only). I've seen this design many times, but I'm looking for guidance, recommendations, suggestion on how to configure this securely. TIA...

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The most secure I figure you can make it is if you setup a static ip on the pc you are going to use to access and set the firewall to only allow that ip and only on the ports you will need to gain remote access ex. vnc port 5900 and 800. I hope I answered you question.

    Need much more information! A - What operating system? If it is just 'Admin' maintenance why are you not using a serial port terminal, or 'KVM' control, or secure shell over the existing NIC? Why are you trying to complicate the system?
