  • Multi-Homed Exchange/Web Server

    I have a new Exchange server set up and it has 2 NICs. I want to use it for E-Mail and our public web site. Should I use 1 NIC and disable the other for both services, or set it up to respond to E-Mail on one NIC, and our web site on the other? Also, can I point the MX records for e-mail and the A records for our web site to the same public IP?

    I don't see any benefits in doing what you said. One NIC is enough for most cases, unless you have a load balancing dual NIC.

      So it is ok to have the public "MX" records and "A" records pointing to the same public IP for both services?

        Yes that happens a lot if not most of the time.
