I have a Windows XP kiosk computer. It has a LAN connection. It is a payment processing device, set up and running fine. I would like to add our remote support software to it, but the LAN connection doesnt allow that traffic. We want to install another LAN 2 card and route only traffic to a public IP Address (our remote support server) via the LAN 2 card.. Any ideas?

Lets say the public  IP address of our remote support server is is .

    yep, that's pretty much it.  Enable the firewall on the router and the NIC and that's probably the best solution.
