external network interface

By k4k ·
i have instaled MS Proxy 2.0 on win2k server. my server's ip address is 192.168.1.20 & its gateway is 192.168.1.7 (which is Cisco pix firewall).

now when i click on "security" in webproxy > Properties i get this error

"packet filtering cannot be enabled on this server because it does not have an external network interface"

1)how do i add this external network interface ??

2) am using pix firewall as gateway for my client machines , what should be the gateway for my proxy server ?

You have two network cards on your server? One for LAN and other for external connections WAN?

Packet Filtering in MS Proxy helps in filtering unwanted packets getting into your network. Basically it acts as a mini firewall. For this to work, you MS Proxy machine should have one External Interface. But as you have a PIX firewall, you need notworry about using this feature. Make sure that you PIX is configured properly :)

Make the MS Proxy Server as the gateway for all your clients. For the Proxy Server, PIX shall be the gateway.
