Two NICs on a Workstation (2)

By mc428 ·
This question will only be accepted from the people who answered previously.

How do I go about putting two NICs to a workstation properly, without having to assign a different IP address and or computer name to each. I've tried a 3Com and a Kingston NIC but was only allowed to use one NIC to logon to the server. Basically, I trying to dedicate each NIC to perform specific applications. Is this possible?

You have to give each NIC an IP address but each will have to be on a separate subnets because the computer name will be the same to each NIC and the machine will see a duplicate name on the network and will shutdown one or both interfaces. Obviously your specific applications will have to address both or either subnet to be able to communicate ( you can add multiple IP,s\subnets to the server NIC using the advanced button on the TCP\IP properties dialog)
