2 NIC / 1 Windows Terminal Server
Posted on 2006-03-31
Lets say I have 2 x NIC with different IP Addresses, lets call them NIC1 and NIC2. Both are connected to the Internet with different IP Addresses and the machine has Windows 2003 Terminal Server installed. Is it possible to implement the following scenario?
I ask users to always connect through the primary NIC 2 address UNLESS they get a notification saying that the current session limit is over 30. Then they are required to connect through the NIC1 address.
By doing so I allocate sufficient bandwidth for best responsive use through NIC1 by setting the limit to 30 sessions. If it reaches the limit then they can connect to secondary NIC1 address where the bandwidth is less busy.
Is this possible?
