Currently Being ModeratedMar 29, 2010 1:32 PM (in response to DannyG01)[Read this|http://labs.hoffmanlabs.com/node/1436] as a start; you're basically going to decide if you want to use NAT or not; if you have enough public static IP addresses to avoid the disaster that's NAT. If you want to use NAT (and few reasonable folks want to, but sometimes we have to), then you get to run your own DNS services internally, and establish public DNS and power-forwarding at a (preferably server-grade) firewall. With NAT, you end up with split DNS, and that's covered in the cited document.
ps: it's easier to [use sftp|http://labs.hoffmanlabs.com/node/942]; while that shares three letters with ftp, it avoids most of the problems of ftp.
