I just configured the first interface of my C150 ESA with ip address, default gateway,listener, RAT and SMTP routes. I want my IronPort to handle mail for another domain with a totally independant netwotk (subnet and mail servers...). Can I configure the second interface the same way I configured the first one (obviously with all the good settings...;-)) ? Does it work? Is there no problem of IP or SMTP routing ?

To be short, I want to do two "one interface configuration" scheme with my ESA (which has two physical interfaces) and not a "two interfaces configuration" scheme

Vincent - should be ok to do this. You have two options to do this:

1. Use the 2nd NIC port and assign IP.

2. Use the virtual gateway feature to get this 2nd IP address onto the network and then create a new listener on the virtual interface..this is much simpler and less work.

Use the interfaceconfig CLI command or in the GUI to do this. Bind the new interface with it's unique DMZ ip onto the same network card as used for the previous interface (data 1 i assume).

Option 2 is much easier
