If I remember smoothwall correctly, and I haven't used it in a little while,
what you are trying to do is impossible with the standard config.
You need to have an Orange interface which can then be seen by both the
green and red networks, acting as a DMZ.
They have some fairly basic rules in place to ensure that you can't do
anything which 'could' be considered stupid.
They will also roast you on their mailing list if you ask them to change it

I don't know smoothwall at all, but as long as you setup your firewall
rules ok, you're fine.
You could nat your webserver, meaning assigning a dns entry outside
called by example : mywebserver.iptest.com then nat it to your internal
dns entry : mywebserver.internal.iptest.com
If i recall, smoothwall uses kernel 2.2 which i don't use anymore but
2.4 kernels with iptables do that brillantly.
