Protocols

By Donvito ·
I need clarification on a couple of points:
1. Can you bind more than one protocol to a network card ie can one nic have IP and IPX?SPX or even Netbeui?

2. Can you have more than one IP address assigned to a nic?

Thanks

A single network card can have TCP/IP, IPX/SPX and Netbeui all bound to it at the same time.

You can hae multiple IP addresses assigned to each NIC. The actual number depends on the version of Windows.

Good luck.

Yes you can have several protocols bound to one card. For the computers to talk they have to have the same protocol on each. I have had some occasion where I couldn't brouse the other computer with tcp/ip and have to add netbeui befor I could.

1) Yes you can bind as many as protocols with one nic because these all are logical binding.

2) Yes you can assign multiple IP addresses but it dependes upon the operating software.

1. Yes.... You can bind more than one protocol to a NIC card. IPX/SPX are two protocols working at different layers (OSI) of the same protocol suite....

2. Yes,you can assign more than one IP address to a nic but you can have only one MAC address for a card. You can add more than one IP in windows by using the Advanced.. option.
