Greetings Aman,

The answer to this question depends on several factors, what you intend to do with the appliance, how you intend on allowing access to the appliance and where it sits in your network. Typically customers will utilize the management interface on their internal network thus giving it a private IP. This way the web interface, ssh and ftp access are allowed internally but not to the public.  Those services can be enabled on other interfaces as well, but the most common practice is to set up the management interface for internal access only on your private network.
