RE: Assessing a machine with 2 NICs

Each nick may have different services bound to it so the results will vary
for each nic.

If you are doing an Audit on a machine you should audit ALL connectivity an
not assume anything.

Subject: Assessing a machine with 2 NICs

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?
