    Server setup with two network cards


    I have a firewall which has 2 internal network addresses and cards - one for normal traffic and the other for the dmz.
    I want to run a server with 2 network cards connected to the 2 different networks. How do I split the cards so they have separate nameservers and networks?
    ie
    card 1: 192.168.1.xxx for secure traffic
    Card 2: 192.168.2.xxx for external web access

    Card 2 must not route or foward to 192.168.1.xxx network.

    Use your network configuration program to configure both interfaces.
    Normally forwarding is turned off so you should have to worry about that.
    As for 192.168.1.* not being routed to 192.168.2.* if someone is able to log onto the server then they could always ssh/telnet into 192.168.2.* unless you have it setup not to with the firewall.

    Thanks for that. What threw me at first was that in suse I had to first assign the card an ip address and save it and then go back to enter its routing info.
    telnet/ssh aren't forwarded by the firewall server, only mail and web services.
