[jdev] Federation server placement

I am trying to understand best practices for server placement from a
firewall perspective:


There are two layers of firewalls, the Web tier which is facing the
public.  The App tier is behind the firewall.  The App Tier cannot
instantiate a connection to the web tier for security reasons.  


Is the best practice to have a federation of servers such that the Web
tier XMPP server is facing outward and automatically connects to an XMPP
server sitting on the App tier so messaging can occur with all clients
inside and outside the firewall?


I don't think I have seen standard docs on how to place Federation
servers with respect to firewalls, etc.  Any comments would be greatly
