    I need 2 internal network cards on different subnets to accomodate a location that uses 2 networks in one building.

    I've done this before in older versions of 3cx on windows without too much headache and I'm installing a Windows VM just to handle this but would rather get this working on Debian.

    Anyone have any insight on this?

    Thanks

    Configure second LAN card without gateway and add static routing to access provider or other network via this card. For example:
    Code:
    # ------------------- Debian 9 --------------------
    
    # Edit /etc/network/interfaces
    
    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
    # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
    
    source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*
    
    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    
    # The primary network interface
    allow-hotplug ens192
    auto ens192
    iface ens192 inet static
        address 10.10.10.10/24
        gateway 10.10.10.1
    dns-nameservers 8.8.8.8
    
    # Interface to provider
    allow-hotplug ens224
    auto ens224
    iface ens224 inet static
        address 10.251.222.114/30
    
    # static route to provider -- network 213.226.61.0/24
    up route add -net 213.226.61.0/24 gw 10.251.222.113 dev ens224

    It's a NIC, not a NIC card.
