TCP/IP

How does one setup two TCP/IP protocals on a WIN98 system? Laptop used at work to get on the network with specific IP/DNS/WINS
Then to take it home and place it on a Cable network requiring specified IP/DNS.
I added two TCP/IP protocalsand it over writes the DNS on both. Is there another protocal or a way to have two? Without adding two network cards?

thanks

TCP/IP

The simplest way of handling the issue is upgrading win2k pro. Win2k pro specifically deals with this issue.

If you are set on Win98 do the following carefully:

To add additional IP addresses, use Registry Editor to edit the registry. Go to the following registry section:


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\NetTrans\

There should be multiple subkeys with the value 0000, 0001, and so on. If the computer has only one network adapter, click the 0000 entry. You should then see a value named IPAddress and a value named IPMask.

For each additional IP address, add to the two values.

The IPAddress value should contain the current IP addresses. This value is a string of IP addresses separated by commas with no embedded spaces. The IPMask value should be a list of comma-separated subnet masks with no embedded spaces. You must add a mask value for each IPAddress. When you are done, quit Registry Editor and then restart the computer.

I would advise having computer support at your work (if available) help with this process.


Good luck!

We solved this problem for a client with a downloaded shareware product. Somewhat like a boot manager, this product is a exit routine that allowes the user to select the IP configuration (from preconfigured choices) on the next boot. It's menu driven, simple to install and configure, and inexpensive. If my memory is correct, it downloads as a 30 day trial so it is fairly risk-free. If you don't mind spending a few dollars for a shareware product, I will dig up the source for you. Post an answeror send me a email and I will look for it. Ray

How about this option - Use multiple hardware configurations so that you can select one from boot up. Good Luck!

You need to bind both ip addresses to the NIC.
