Multi-homed server

Aright, I have an IIS server and a SQL Server.

There are two NICs in each machine: a 10/100 & a 1000 (Gigabit).

Due to the sheer amount of information being passed between the two machines, I want them to have a dedicated link over the Gigabit connection.

How can I setup the servers (probably metrics) so that they use the Gigabit connection when they are talking to each other, and the 10/100 when they are talking to the rest of the network.

The *best* answer is to create a Virtual LAN connection at the hub...  That will separate the traffic between the servers.  This requires a fairly new hub/switch (not an elcheapo un-managed model).  The specific instructions on how to create a VLAN would be from the vendor of the hub/switch.

Hmm, these two would be plugged directly into each other (for Gigabit). Could a crossover cable + metrics work?

Are you saying that you don't have a GigaBit-capable hub/switch?   If so, then you're right... you'll have to do it the "hard way", with crossover cables and manually setting up routing tables.
