Configuring the Network Interfaces in the Proxy Server

After you create the new public DNS entry, you must configure the network interfaces in your proxy server to respond to the appropriate IP addresses.

Your proxy server has a public, or external, network interface, which is exposed to the clients that will attempt to connect to you (usually over the Internet). Your proxy server might have a public adapter to allow client connections from external networks such as the Internet. The proxy server must also have at least one private, internal adapter, exposed to servers that it is protecting.

You use the Network Connections control panel on the Windows Server 2003 computer acting as a proxy server to change the network card configuration. For more information about configuring the network interface, see the Windows Server 2003 networking documentation .
