I have a VPN server setup on a Windows 2003 box. I just installed an extra NIC card, so now I have two. What I'm confused about is how do I configure one to be used for internet and the other to be used for the network? During the VPN setup, I did define which one is which, but I'm having a hard time to connect to the server from the internet since I think it's using the wrong NIC card. I pointed my router to the my 2nd NIC card's internal IP address, but I'm not sure if that 2nd NIC card is using the Internet or is the first one using the internet (only 1 can use the internet at a time??). Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.
