How to IP WAAS mobile server dual NIC?

I'm setting up a WAAS mobile server behind Internet firewall (ASA5510), but not too clear about how the server's dual NIC should be set up (ASA is also the VPN gateway for mobile users).

a. Is one NIC supposed to be "internal interface", and the other one to be "external interface"? In other words, 'internal" NIC uses a private IP while "external" NIC uses a public IP?

b. Is it ok to treat the mobile server just like any other internal server where two NIC's share a private IP?

c. Cisco design docs indicate mobile server should be associated to a VPN gateway. Where is it configured on the mobile server? or is it configured in the client software?

Thanks a lot
