Re: Assessing a machine with 2 NICs

Yes, you should scan both NICs to get different views and the OS
detection can also change depending on the closed/open services in
each interface.
Some critical services shouldn't return high-risk information mainly
in the public NIC (assuming one of the nics is directly connected to
the internet).
if running nmap i suggest try the last 3.90, with services database improved.

Lets say we have a machine running critical business applications connected to the enterprise network on 2 NICs. From 
an assessment/audit point of view, is it necessary to scan both NICs using assessment tools like NMap and Nessus? 
Will both scan results produce the same findings (as in same ports and services open)?
Does the OS or applications influence the detection of ports/services on different NICs on the same physical machine?
