DMZ host

In computing, some home routers (SOHO/Linksys/SMC) refer to a DMZ host.

These are pseudo DMZ's, as they provide no security between that host and the internal network.

A home router DMZ host is a host on the internal network that has all ports exposed, except those ports forwarded otherwise.
