EDGE needs 2 nics? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Can anyone tell me why the Edge server role needs two NIC's?

     

    If you have an Edge server in a DMZ, it typically has one NIC. The firewall will have more than one interface and control access to the various networks.

     

    For example,

     

         Internet

    |

    |

         Firewall ---- DMZ Network (where Edge is located)

              |

              |

       Internal Network (where OCS Server is located

     

    So what I've done is added a second NIC to the Edge server and connected it to the Internal network. Is it possible to just have it on the same network segment as the other NIC's?

     

    Thanks!
