Want to make sure my DMZ is correct



  • Ok so I puy my xbox on a dmz and how it looks is like this.

    dmz                          lan
    192.168.2.1                192.168.1.1

    pfsense

    modem

    I have setup the suggested rules of blocking dmz traffic from the lan in the how-to I have found and letting connection to wan.  After that I did just a rule like the any rule for lan but on dmz (changed to dmz subnet).  I am not getting any NAT problems and my xbox is connecting to upnp from the status.

    What I am curious of is any security risks.  This is a just a home firewall system but a bit overkill but I tinker and had a old computer sitting around doing a whole lot of waste spacing.  But it is a apt building and there are people who would love to use others networks.

    And to add this wire is connected DIRECTLY from the back of the comptuer to my xbox so no wireless or additional switch.

    Sorry for this being so long winded and probably all over the place.

    If you do not have the same Allow any to any on wan, I think It's fine
