multiple IP NICs on Notes 4.6x server

I have a Notes 4.6x server running on NT 4.0 server.  It had 1 NIC configure with a particular IP address, which it needs to communicate with other Notes servers (they are all on one segment).  Users connect via IPX/SPX.
In an effort to change our users to connect via IP, I added a 2nd NIC and configured it with the local IP segment info.  No IPX/SPX, routing is disabled between NICs.
Problem is that the Notes server has flaky communications with other Notes servers now.
I tried this same situation on another Notes server that was setup to route to our ISP for internet mail and it kept trying to route the mail to the new NIC's IP address, which kept failing.
On both cases, as soon as we disable the 2nd NICs, all problems go away.  These are all new NICs and I've even tried using other NICs to no avail.
Anyone know of a Notes configuration issue here?
NT itself has no problems working with both NICs, just Notes.
Thanks.

Check your Connection Docs.  There is probably a problem there.  Also check your Server Docs under Network Configuration.  Have a look at the port names and Notes Named Networks.

You want to make sure that the TCP/IP port is configured for the same NNN as the other servers TCP/IP ports.  This will allow mail to route automatically without Connection Docs.

There may be something to do with your domain here as well. If you don't have proper explicit connection documents, then Notes will attempt to route your mail across all NIC's in that domain. Same applies to replication to another server.

Notes/Domino can only attach/bind to one IP address at a time, your confusing it by giving it multiple IP Addresses and Hostnames. You will need to install the advanced services which will allow you to run a virtual Domino server. You would then have two different servers running on the same hardware.

There is a caveat which I have seen. Sometimes this will work and others not. In your server record in your NAB add the additiona hostnames and IP addresses seperately in the network config portion. Restart your server.

We have had huge success running virtual Domino servers on the same physical server and would probably help with many other logistics for your server. You could then use one of the servers for e-mail only allow more control of mail routing.
