Configuring Multi-NIC Cards With Lan and IP
Posted on 2007-03-26
Im using Win 20003k Ent. Server with IIS 6.0 and SQL Server on the same box. Its a DEV Box so no comments please about it bveing on the same box.. I have two Nic Cards, and 5 static IPs.
I'm using xxx.xx.xxx.138 for the SQL Server = Works Fine!
I want to use xxx.xx.xxx.137 as the IP that IE Explorer uses when I surf the internet on this computer and ALSO as the IP IIS6 uses exclusively. My understanding is that with IIS6, all I need to do is configure the host headers to point to port and IP and its done.. HOw to do for IE Exploere for surfing though?
How do I set this up? Do I need to configure the host file?
If so, I need DETAILED instructions as I have never done that before. .
So Basically, keep one nic operational for the DB and use the other nic for just surfing and IIS.
