Eh, smart counter question.

Basically, proxy(which acts as a reverse) and firewall are on one IP/machine(A) to which shall be send http or any other requests by clients.
All others services are on other IPs, like web on one IP and database on second IP/machine etc...
Clients always see IP of machine (A).
For example request to (A) for http, makes (A) forward that request to machine (B), which has a http server installed and sends it back to (A), which then serves it back to the client.
All headers, notations, IP...etc, must be exactly same as (A) served that request directly to the client.
Basically, each service has it's own machine and IP, but are all accessed through (A) and are served like (A) directly served them.
