Agreed, but for this application (intranet and publicly available),
using separate NICs and ip addresses is a security best practice :)

But with nslookup reporting the same ip address for both host names,
I'd double check the DNS configuration, make sure you don't have
round-robin turned on or something wacky like that. Check the IIS
settings mentioned above too, those are good ideas :)
