    Windows 2003 + 2 IPs

    Hi,

    Can I configure windows 2003 to use multiple IPs?? Is it necessary to have a separate ethernet connection for each IP?? Loopback, does it help?? What about Linux??

    Can I configure windows 2003 to use multiple IPs??
    Yes of course. Click "Advanced" > "Add" in the NICs TCP/IP properties.

    Is it necessary to have a separate ethernet connection for each IP??
    No. See above.

    is it possible for the others to see my second IP instead of my primary one?? I want to seed a file from my server using the 2nd IP instead of the 1st one...is it possible?? if so, how can I do that??

    thnx in advance,

    P.S. I have only 1 Ethernet port, and I do not have physical access to the server..

    If the file is downloaded from a website, then you bind the (sub)domain to that IP adress in IIS. (also works for FTP)

    I don't know torrents at all, but, the torrent service needs to bind to the specific ip. If it is written like many apps, it will just open a connection and bind to 0.0.0.0, resulting in winsock using the primary ip as the source ip. The only way you can use a secondary ip is if the application specifically has a setting to bind to a specific ip.
