    Is it possible to setup an XP machine to login into two seperate domains. Is also possible to assign a NIC card two IP addresses.

      -As far as the two IP thing… sure is.
      Go into the control panel, and Network Connections, and look at the TCP/IP settings.
      You’ll be able to multi-home it.
      -The easiest way is to create a trust relationship between the two domains. Then you’ll be able to jump. Assuming rights are in place.

      Here is an article with instructions on assigning additional ip address’ to a single nic.

      I don’t think you can log into more than one domain. The pc requires a computer account for the domain it belongs to and there isn’t any method that I could find to add a second name to it’s network id.

        I should add you could use a vpn connection to one of the domains. This would get you access to the network resources of the “other domain”. This vpn connection could also be assigned a static address and would eliminate the need to multi-home your nic.

      You can only join a PC to ONE domain, but if you set up trust relationships then the other domains will appear in the logon screen options and then you can also login to that.
