A server only needs 1 NIC - a router 2. Of course a router can be a
server as well which is what I think you are trying to setup.
ON DL theres a number of preconfigured firewall rules - You probably
should start with /etc/init.d/firewall.rules.2nic. Copy that file to
To allow access to ftp server you will probably have to tweak the rules.
because, out of the box, it will block ftp from the internet.
At this point I would suggest you change from using ftp to ssh. You can
use something like "putty" on windows. The firewall is easier to
configure for ssh and ssh is much more secure than ftp.
If you're not up to tweaking iptables rules directly then I suggest
using fwbuilder to create a new set of rules. It has some preconfigured
2 nic scenarios and is a rather fine visual tool. Allow yourself a
little while to get used to it though.
