ESM 9.5 Installed on VM - how to configure ESM to listen on other interfaces (eth1)

I installed ESM 9.5 on VMWare and have 2 interfaces attached:

eth0: ESM recognizes as console

eth1: would like ESM to listen on this interface but cannot figure out in console UI how to activate this

The reason is that I am evaluating ESM and would like eth1 to be connected on a virtual switch to simulate suspicious traffic.

Any info would be helpful.

thank you!

System Properties on the ESM . Go to N etwork Settings, Main. You can then enable interface 2- add IP, Gateway.

Ah, found it now, thank you!

Re: ESM 9.5 Installed on VM - how to configure ESM to listen on other interfaces (eth1)

So I configured the second virtual adapter listening on a virtual switch (a different switch/network segment from the 1st adapter or mgmt port) and then replayed some packets the virtual switch but no events were detected by the 2nd adapter.  Is ESM able to listen for traffic/events on other adapters, especially if they are on different network segments?
