Create a virual lan card

Hi,

i have my machine on the domain which i use for my daily work.What i want now is a way to connect to my testing domain which is isolated from my domain.Is there a way to have a virual lan card which i can disable the main lan card and connect to my virtual lan card when ever required>this will help me not to connect the testing domain to my network.

Regards
Sharath

hello

you can setup a secondary ip (assuming that your testing domain is on another subnet)
to do that you right click the lan connection , properties, internet protocol (tcp/ip) properties , advanced, and then add the second ip that you want your computer to have.
in case you do not want this (to have access to both domains at the same time ) you can try programs like ipshifter. It can changes your ip set (ip, subnet, gateway) to whatever you define
hope it helped

if your production LAN usages DHCP then it is very simple, you dont need to do anything while changing network cable.

go to network connection properties and in the IP configuration provide alternate configuration to use manual IP and fill necessary detail

all you need to change the cable because the networks are isolated

Thanks a lot for the answers.When i do any of the above will these 2 domain have any link.Because i dont want these 2 domains to meet each other as they have different DHCP servers installed....

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If you want dynamic address in both domain, all you need is to change cable.

if you want static IP then you will have to use some IPshifter kind of tools

I have 1 domain which give a dhcp ip address and another that's my testing domain where a static ip has to be specified.

I have downloaded the ipshifter but a bit confused configuring it.

1. go to network connection properties
2. configure to use DHCP, which will enable getting Production network IP.
3. on the alternate configuration tab select manual IP and fill necessary detail

4. save and close settings.

now when you are connected to production domain you will receive normal DHCP IP, when you connect to testing domain you will not receive any IP because there is no DHCP (as per your comments); the system will now use IP provided in alternate configuration section.
