We have a UC-software with XMPP-connector in oure LAN. Now I want to connect this server to the wide world an to other xmpp-clients which have no client of oure software. But I don’t want to forward the xmpp-port in our LAN, for something like this we have a DMZ.
Now I can connect the servers via ‘Server to Server’-dialogue with port 5269, or via ‘External-Components’-dialogue with port 5275. What will be the better way?
If I use teh ‘Server to Server’-dialogue, my internal server goes directly to the internet. Is it still possible, to forward incomming connections to my openfire-server , which is forwarding this messages to my internal server. I guess, that I need other DNS-records in my DMZ as in the internet, but that’s no problem (I hope). Or is it also possible to set a fix server IP-adress somwhere in the configuration for my internal domain-name?
