I was wondering if it's possible to have two NICs on one PC connected to different networks so the PC can access both. For example NIC 1 would have IP 192.168.0.10 to access the local network and NIC 2 would have a public IP like 173.194.33.35 to access the internet. Would this setup allow me to SSH into 173.194.33.35 over the internet and then access the local 192.168.0.xxx network?

Thanks,
BB

Thanks for the reply Luke. We haven't built the box yet still in the planning stages but I believe it will be running some flavor of Linux. That is a great idea to just port forward instead of giving it a public IP. This box will most likely also be hosting an FTP server so I could port forward 21 for this as well.

No problem, just one thing, I think FTP requires both 20 and 21. One is control and the other is for the data... I couldn't tell you which is which though! But yes, that will work, just make sure you are using good passwords!
