1.    So that you can have your firewall on the first interface, and the IDS sniffing the
second, to catch things that get passed the first!
You can do this using IPF and source based policy routing.
I asked a question on how to do it, on this list a week or two ago - look at the archives
/ search for any posts by me, and look at the first few replies :)
