You can add a an additional port to the 515 that you already have, but you can only have a maximum of 3 physical interfaces with the restricted license.  It supports 48,000 maximum connections with the restricted license, and 130,000 maximum connections with the unrestricted license.  You should only need the restricted license since that will also allow you to add the 3rd interface for a DMZ and supports 48,000 max connections.
