Agent Handler in DMZ - What is published IP address used for?

Jump to solution

Greetings

We have an Agent Handler in the DMZ that separates one part of the business that has private IP addresses (10.x) with the other part that has public IP addresses (e.g. 157.x.), with firewall rules preventing access to/from the internet.  I.e.,  both networks are NOT accessible over the internet.

This means that PCs on the:

  • 10. network should access the AH using the AH's 10.x address
  • 157.x network should access AH using the AH's 157.x address

With that said is there any use in configuring the Published IP address field with the public (but non-internet accessible) 157.x IP address if the AH isn't accessible on the internet?

I notice that when I check the MA properties on PCs on the 157.x network addresses, it shows the correct AH, but the IP address listed is the 10.x address of the AH not the 157.x.    Thankfully clients can still make connections to the AH I assume because DNS resolves to 157.x.

AHIP.pngPC on the 157 network is reporting AH as being 10.x, but 10.x traffic is blocked. Client still can connect because DNS resolves to 157.x

If the 157 address is a natted IP or an alias, then yes, you need to add the published IP to ah settings.

Thank you, yes, 157.x is our NAT address.
