What is an "endpoint"?

Do you mean that it will be connected directly to the internet (the same
one your router is connected to) or do you have another network
connection all together (another router?)

Also do you intend to run VNC as a server, (allowing others
to connect to your machine) or are you only running
VNC as a client (connecting to other machines located elsewhere)?

Either of the above, over the same internet connection should
not require a separate nic. Perhaps just a entry in the router
table of the firewall/router if you are going to be a VNC server.

OTOH, if it is a totally separate internet connection, all
you need to do is slap in a nic, reboot and use Yast to
configure it to your needs and set ROUTING = No.
