    Hi all,

    If I explain my setup first to make things easier.

    I’m using an ADSL connection to the Internet on a dedicated Smoothwall firewall with 2 NIC’s.

    1 for the GREEN LAN
    1 for the ORANGE DMZ

    In the DMZ I have an IP configuration and Use my ISP’s DNS servers.

    All works great an I have no problems with connectivity, I have build a Debian web server for hosting and followed the guide on then I have installed the ISPConfig package and everything is all going smooth.

    On the Smoothwall I have a dynDNS account and have setup the correct forwarding rules so I can http, https, smtp, ftp to my site but I would like to use the wildcard setup and host virtual systems like:


    And I would like these to be on different IP’s in the DMZ.

    Is this possible? If so can someone give me some advice?

    I've never used Smoothwall, so I can't tell you if this is possible... :(

    how do i setup my hosts ?

    well how do i setup my vhosts on diffrent ips?
    as im guess that if i use my as the domain part then i can put newhost in the hostname part and i should be able to hit the vhost as bind should tell the smoothwall which ip to send newhost to ?

    Check the trash if the domain is still in there. You cannot empty the trash befire the config has been written to disk, this may take up to a minute.

    Go to Management -> Server -> Settings and add additional IP addresses there, one per line.
    After you've saved this, you can select from the available IP addresses whenever you create a new web site.

    How many Public IPs do you have on your Firewall? If like most home firewalls you have 1 Public IP, then you can only pass traffic for 1 private IP. Therefore, having additional Vhosts on different IPs would be useless unless you wish them only to be internal.
