How to team port a windows machine?

You can do this by using either 3Coms solution or Intels. There is a S/W that makes this possible as well but it is fairly expensive and not as robust. I would recommend going with 3Coms Server NICs as the load balancing and Teaming functionality comes on the CD that comes with the NIC.

Set-up is very easy and you can support up to 8 Nics in a group with one IP addy, this will allow for load balancing, redundancy and more bandwidth to the server.

Hope this helps.

Teaming requires support on both the switch end and on the workstation/server end. That having been said, the challenge is to find a solution that works on both ends and does so without causing routing, ARP, spanning-tree or applications problems.
One combination that I know works is Cisco switches and Compaq's NIC teaming (the Compaq NIC uses an Intel chipset) but there may be others.
