Datto Networking Appliance (DNA): DMZ Host



This article describes the DMZ Host feature for the Datto Networking Appliance (DNA).


  • Datto Networking Appliance (DNA)


In networking, a demilitarized zone or perimeter network (often referred to as a DMZ) functions as a container subnetwork to selectively expose a network's external-facing services to the Internet, while keeping the remainder of the network firewalled, adding a layer of protecting to a LAN. For more information about DMZ technology, see DMZ (external link).


To access the DMZ Host card, log into the DNA web interface, and click Firewall, as shown in Figure 1.
