Groupwise Sending and receiving on separate NICs
Posted on 2004-08-24
I am trying to establish if you can split the traffic through the Gwia to go through different network cards - incoming mail on one card and outgoing on another.
The background is:
The firewall is a Netpilot. The MX record also points to the Netpilot, which will continue to receive the mail. We want the outgoing mail to leave through a separate NIC. The purpose, as I understand it, is that, since the Netpilot is the default gateway, any (or most) virus activity inside the network, will attempt to send mail through the default gateway. This client had his domain blocked some time ago because of a virus that got in from somewhere. We can now safely block any outgoing email traffic on the netpilot if Groupwise can send mail on a different nic, ensuring that virusses cannot send mail out of the network. Hence the need to split the incoming and outgoing mail over 2 nics.
Is this possible? I posted this question on the Novell Support Forum yesterday and had no response (yet). That makes me wonder if this can be done.
