dual-homed host
Last modified: Friday, July 22, 2005 

A dual-homed host is a term used to reference a type of firewall that uses two (or more) network interfaces. One connection is an internal network and the second connection is to the Internet. A dual-homed host works as a simple firewall provided there is no direct IP traffic between the Internet and the internal network.
