Yes, I know. But I need to forward che connection from the
firewall itself like it comes from the rest of the LAN. I
don't understand why it refuses all connections on forwarded
ports and not on other ports (ex: SSH is not forwarded, I can
connect to firewall from firewall).

This is needed because firewall has another interface for
internet and the webserver in DMZ must replay to internet
requests. But that's not the problem, it works. :-)

Thank you!
