Wow! Why even have a DMZ and a firewall if your going to puch a bunch of
holes in it and even move parts of your network to the other side?
Set up a tunneling server in the DNZ using ssh. That way you expose only one
port on one server and ssh will do the forwarding rather than the router. You can
just tell the daemon which IP it should send the connection to.
