PortalGuard in a DMZ

When the PortalGuard server is situated in a DMZ, the following holds true:

  • External users access it directly
  • Internal users access it directly or via proxy based on network configuration
  • PortalGuard must tunnel from the DMZ into the LAN to access the user repository and optionally its SQL data repository.This means access rule changes on the firewall between the DMZ and LAN.
