    Round Robin - IP address pool on Windows

    If I have a dedicated server with say 5 IP addresses and I browse the web from my server, which IP address will it use?

    I know that IP address for browsing will probably have to be configured somewhere. But where in Windows?

    Also will all the IP addresses be used in some type of round robin approach? Or is this a special configuration option?

    In IIS when you setup a website you can tell it which IP or IPs you want it to use.

    The best thing todo is setup the "Default website" to use all IPs and stop the site. This stops all the nasty Nimda type attacks as they attack by IP address.

    All other websites are then setup using host headers where youy specify the IP address etc you want to use. Its all point and click with drop down boxes.
