Re: RE: Assessing a machine with 2 NICs

If it is an enterprise deployment - most likely the NICs are simply redundant - with the OS doing the switching if one 
of the NIC's goes down - that said, it is possible to run a service on a specific NIC - although not common.

From a pentest POV, I would portscan the box with one NIC disconnected and vice versa - to see if anyone has done that 
in deployment.
