Hi Mohammed,

If I am understanding your question correctly, no, the P2 does not have to be external.  You can configure it any way you'd like and controlling it  using Static Routes.  However, as a best practice, I would recommend P2 to speak to internal clients and have P1 speak to the external.  I work for TAC and when you enable the remote access for cases, it will use the P1.  So if the P1 does not have any internet access, it will be difficult to enable it.

I do not see any correlation with advancedproxyconfig > miscellaneous in regards to the interfaces.  Can you clarify?
