Configuring NICs K1000 Appliance

06/04/2012 5155 views

My company has two completely separate networks.
On the appliance, there are 4 NICs, but you can set only one ...
Do you know how to set up the other cards so that the appliance is access to other networks?
And if it is not possible, how to make an inventory of the two networks?

Thank you for your answers.

My first question would be - can you route traffic between the networks?  If so, the network the K1000 is not on may just need a route statement or access list rule in the firewall, router or switch (depends on configs as to which one) in order for traffic from that network to reach the K1000 and vice versa. 

If they are completely separate and have no connectivity, another option may be to setup an IPSec VPN tunnel between them and then setup access rules so that only traffic to and from the KBOX is permitted across the VPN tunnel.

Another option (not what I would recommend, but...) would be to host the KBOX with a NAT translation (either on a DMZ or by way off opening ports in the firewall) so it is accessible via the Internet and have hosts from the other network access using the public (i.e. Internet IP).  For example, the KBOX would use for the internal IP address, but a translation rule on the firewall would assign an external IP address (for example, just to throw something out there).  This would require you to have a block of public IP addresses, which most larger companies do (but not all smaller ones).  It would also require figuring out exactly which ports to open for KBOX access, but this is pretty well documented.

Good luck!

I don't think the other nics are active. How are the networks segmented, is one completely private from the internet or do both have network access?  I have one nat'd network and a public face network and I have our k1000 in a dmz allowing access to both networks.


Is there a DMZ available for the Kace appliance?

Correct, only the first NIC on a K1000 appliance is configured for use.  The others are unused.
