I was the one who recently bugged Herbert about this kind of setup.
I had promised I would write a summary of Herbert's tips [other things
came up and I had to delay ;-/ ], so I could help with a section or two
(but not next week).
Nevertheless, I should point that I have the impression that trying to
mimic a DMZ network and an internal network through multiple vservers
inside a single host doesn't give more security that just having all the
vservers on the same net as the host; the impression coming mainly from
Herbert's persistently calling this a "funny" scenario.
It seems that "ngnet" might be what we are actually looking for...

Best regards,
Vserver mailing list
