Re: LDAP, DMZ, private lan

	Depending on what firewall system you are using (ipchains vs. iptables)
you might be better putting the LDAP server on the LAN and just have LDAP
connections from the DMZ interface NAT'd to the LAN interface. Deny all LDAP
access attempts from the WAN -> LAN channel so your LDAP server is properly

	Basically this is sthe situation I am running into myself as I use
LDAP to authenticate all servers on my network. The only difference is that
I plan on allowing LDAPS (636/tcp) connections from the WAN->LAN and only
LDAP (389/tcp) connections from DMZ->LAN.
