2 Network cards
Posted on 2005-04-13
I'm wondering how to configure a second network card on my Windows 2000 Pro workstation so that all activity to the server goes through the 1st card, while all non-server activity (like sending to a printer, connecting to a another computer) goes throught the second. Is this possible?
I want to reduce the load on the switch when the workstation talks to the main server. It pumps a lot of gigs a day! The server is an OS X server using samba to connect. All our cables and cards are already Gigabit. Both the server and the workstation have 2 cards on the mobo.
Another way to put it: Tell the system to use card 1 when talking to ip x.x.x.1 and use card 2 for any other ip.
