Question about Cyberguard SG300 (00852503000366) Firewall
From the main configuration screen select Network Setup, and then click on the Connections Tab. In the tabline below that click on Aliases.
At this point you input the Alias IP address and the netmask and add it, selecting port 25. The firewall now knows that it is to forward all traffic on port 25 to the computer that has the IP address you put in.
You should be aware that doing the above opens a direct access point into your network! Port 25 is the port used for SMTP (Sendmail) and it is the most vulnerable and most hacked service on the Internet! You should seriously consider not doing this.
A better option would be to goto the DMZ tab and configure a DMZ net on your firewall - you will need to obtain a second routable IP address from your ISP to do this though. By creating the DMZ and then routing port 25 to a machine inside the DMZ you isolate the machine running SMTP from all of the other machines inside your protected network and so make a compromise much less likely.
All of the systems inside your protected network will still have demand access to the machine in our DMZ, but the machine in your DMZ would be unable to initialize access to the protected network, which is a much safer setup.
