SQL 2005 Reporting Services and IIS with Dual NIC

How do I make all Reporting Services / IIS traffic travel over NIC 1 when two NICS are configured?

-Windows Server 2003 configured with Dual NICS.
--NIC 1 is
--Nic 2 is
-Sql Server 2005 with Reporting Services
-IIS is configured
-The Cisco ASA 5510 is configured to allow traffic exchange with

SCENARIO:  Currently I connect to the ASA with the Cisco client and use the web browser to hit http:\\\portal.html  across that connection.  Everything is presented fine and ask for authentication etc.  However, when I click one of the internal links, it reflects (Nic 2) on the bottom of the browser instead of (Why the change?).  of course this is configured to route outside the Cisco so it fails.  we are able to make it work my RDP into the server and executing there since you can hit both NIC from inside the server.

I have edited the two config files to use the Static IP address of NIC 1 instead of the server name, but it still does not work.  I did enable NETBIOS over the NIC since I read that might have been an issue (I put it back).  The files were rsreporting.config  and the web one which I can;t recalll the name at the moment.  Would I need to restart the server after I made those changes or is there something else I am missing?

did you set the IIS website that reporting services is on to listen only on that IP address?  You will have to select this from the IIS manager.

This was never answred with success and I am still researching.   The Dual-Homed NICS seem to be the core of the issue.   All Reporting Services web pages are not presenting over the correct NIC.
