I'm considering buying a Fortigate 50b (or Fortigate 60b) firewall to separate my web (iis) machine from the DB machine. (See http://www.fortinet.com/doc/FGT50_100DS.pdf)
Till now the two servers were connected directly via a cross cable using the 2nd network card.
The 50b model doesn't have a DMZ port.
What does that mean? what is the difference between a firewall DMZ port to a interface port ? Is it not possible to create rules (block/allow port based traffic) on a interface port?
P.S: I know that in general i should put any server connected to the wan(internet) on a DMZ port , but on our current firewall(Fortigate 200a) , any interface port can be used as dmz port..
