Accessing two subnets with two NICS
Posted on 2013-12-28
1. I have Internet coming into my workgroup on 192.168.0.x network
2. I have installed a firewall (WAN 192.168.0.x and LAN 192.168.3.x)
I have a computer that I want to be behind the firewall (192.168.3.x) and upstream of the firewall (192.168.0.x). I will use two separate Network Interface cards in this computer to accomplish this.
NIC1. 192.168.0.x DHCP (Live to Internet upstream of firewall)
NIC 2 192.168.3.5 (Live to Internet on firewall Internal LAN)
The reason being that this network is in a remote location. I want to be able to log in remotely to check firewall settings (even if the firewall is not getting a WAN signal for some reason)
I want to make sure I am not creating any networking or security issues by doing this.
Isn't this basically Network Address Translation on this computer ?
Can anyone clarify this for me?
