Networking 2 NICs

Hi all,

Host - Ubuntu 12.04 desktop 64bit
Virtualizer - Oracle VirtualBox
2 NICs

Where can I find relevant document to set up 2 NICs, one for inward bound and another for outward bound, separate channel, both connected to the same router

Would following document be appropriate for my use?

Network Configuration

Assuming that you have two physical NICs installed on the platform VirtualBox is on, you can setup your Virtualbox Ubuntu instance to use bridged networking with a virtual NIC attached to each physical NIC.

Read the VirtualBox documentation for more information.
