I am installing Exchange 2013 with 2 network cards,... 1x private, and the other, bridged (internet)

1st nic has 172.x.x.x (no gateway)
2nd nic has 192.168.x.x.x with gateway and dns pointing to Network router.

Exchange is installed, however I cannot set up Send Connector

After I enter (*) for SMTP, and at the last stage when I select the sever, I can add it to the list, but I cannot apply..,... Its available to click , but doesn't do anything.. To get out I must Force close pane. "Leave Page?? "

Presumably, I assume because I have 2 nics, but I thought it would be possible,,,,, Is it possible or must exchange only have 1 nic only?

This is on exchange 2013 CU23

    Hi @dss ds ,
    There is no official documentation stating that you could not install two NICs, and there are previous cases of using two NICs, so I think this should work.
    You could try the following methods:
    1.Try again with a different browser

    2.Use cmdlet to create the send connector, you could refer to:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/exchange/new-sendconnector?view=exchange-ps

    New-SendConnector -Internet -Name MySendConnector -AddressSpaces contoso.com,fabrikam.com
