We have been using bordermanager 3.7 on nw6 for several years. The
server has dual nics. Have had no problems with performance.We are using
it only for controlling access to the web and proxy (a different box
does firewall duties) so filtsrv is not loaded. We have recently added a
standalone surfcontrol box (windows)that monitors the private nic of the
bm server, and we keep getting a lot of traffic from the proxy. After
doing some sniffer captures it turns out that most of the traffic (if
not all of it) appears to be going in and out the same nic, as opposed
to coming in the private nic and going out the public nic (which is what
I thought was happening). What am I missing? Would this only work if it
was configured as a firewall?
