    We host several web and mail servers we are migrating to cpanel. We intend to host cpanel on a multi-server VMware environment. We chose this route to give us redundancy, quick deployment, and better security. What I cant seem to wrap my head around is that cpanel requires a registered address be on the server, yet if I place that server behind a firewall, the actual IP on the server is behind NAT, and thus not a public address. Is there any way of achieving this, either through Nat, VLAN, or slight-of-hand? I am willing to place these servers on the public network if need-be, but that reduces the advantage of isolating the servers behind the firewall. We are using Cisco ASA for firewalls and Cisco 2800's for gateways.
    Any input would be helpful.

    Figured out....

    Well, I think I got this one. I will add a third Ethernet adapter, place it on the public network, configure VMware with another virtual switch and adapter, and place all public VM's on the public network. Thats easy.....?
