We have a block of IP addresses and have assigned various internet-facing servers public addresses using the following (on a1760):
ip nat inside source static tcp i.i.i.i port e.e.e.e port extendable
Incoming and outgoing mail works just fine until the mail server reports its name as mail.domain.com but with the public ip of the FastEthernet (NAT) interface. There are reverse dns issues and mail will occasionally be bounced:
Received: from mail.domain.com (unknown [x.x.x.x]) by mail.domain2.com
(where x.x.x.x is the internet-facing interface of the 1760)
I'd like this to happen:
Received: from mail.domain.com (unknown [x.x.x.y]) by mail.domain2.com
(where x.x.x.y is the public ip assigned to the mail server)
public ip address but I'm not too sure exactly how to make the change.
Presumably I pick an unused FastEthernet interface, enter "no shutdown" and hang a switch off that... but do I give it an ip address? Do I give the mail server a public ip, does it keep its private ip, does it need a new private ip for the dmz, or both? How does the routing work?
I think I know what to do but am stuck on how to go about it. A prod in the right direction would be very much appreciated.
