Well since I only have one computer with the possibility of running these services I placed the services in jails which act as the outside computers. What I dont understand is, with a jail being placed in this dmz, how secure are the jails themselves as far as the host is concerned? Is is difficult to secure your main host computer from these jails in case they do get compromised? That is more what I dont understand.
