New Netowrk Configuration

My company has started processing credit card transactions. We bought 3 new dell servers for the process each with two NIC's One of the servers will connect directly to a leased line to the credit card company. So I have a router that connects to the leased line to the card company  Eth interface of the router is 10.1.2.1 subnet 255.255.255.240
So the 1st nic on this server is 10.1.2.2 /255.255.255.240
The other two servers have public ip adresses             1st Nic 209.248.160.85/ 255.255.255.240 Default GW 209.248.160.81 /255.255.255.240
What should the ip adress of the 2nd Nic be?
The next server has a public ip of 209.248.160.89 /255.255.255.240
What should the ip adress of the 2nd Nic be?
If I make the other nic's 10.1.2.3/4 255.255.255.240 Respectively I packet over flow the switch and the router
Do I need to use RRAS or what?
Thanks In advance

What an odd setup this is...

you should have all the 2nd NIC's addressed on the 10.1.2.x subnet.
You should have only one default gateway - 209.248.160.81 for those with a public IP address
You need a static route entry on each box:
C:\route add -p 10.1.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 10.1.2.1

>I packet over flow the switch and the router
Are both NIC's plugged into the same switch? Can you VLAN the switch, or provide two separate switches?

I think the static route might help, and if you vlan or separate the two networks on two switches it might help this.

With regard to your second part of your question about RRAS.  I would suggest using RRAS as it means you don't have to use the command line to add persistant routes.

Also, it allows you to use routing protocols such as RIP & OSPF which might prove useful if you decide you want backup routes to the CC company.
