Server with 2 NIC's


I have a Red Hat 9 server that has a couple of samba shares. Nothing special. The server has 2 network cards, and our workplace has 2 networks with are totally seperate (ie, its own dns, dhcp etc)

I don't want anything to be passed through the networks. Like I don't want users on network1 to be able to access anything on network 2, and vice versa.

Is this a simple case of making sure ip forwarding is turned off?

If not, how hard is it to set this up?

Thanks for any help.

As long as it's not routing/forwarding, you should be OK. A project I worked on once had the same situation, sun box though.
