definition of firewall(FW) NIC interface

Postby tfirkins on Tue Jun 02, 2009 10:43 am

When configuring firewall interfaces, three choices are offered, trusted(int), untrusted(ext) and firewall(fw). What is the purpose of firewall (fw)? My guess is that it serves as a single secure channel for webtool access, as opposed to just accessing it from the trusted interface, where potential hackers might want to get in and change rules. Just want to be sure.
