GTM placement for public DNS


I got my hands on a GTM with version 9.4.5, which I want to use as a public DNS for jy domains. I have also bought a LTM which I will use as a reverse proxy for my webservers.

What i cannot find any info on is: where do jou place the GTM? I am a F5 novice. My intended setup:

Internet - firewall - gtm (dns) - ltm (rev.proxy) - firewall - servers

Is this correct? Does traffic actually flow through the gtm?? Or should this be:

`Internet - firewall - gtm (dns)
                   - ltm (rev. Proxy) - firewall - servers

What is the best way to go forward here? Any help is welcome!

Thanks, Marcel
