Per user NIC settings in Windows 7
Posted on 2010-01-02
I have a network at home with Smoothwall acting as a proxy (in transparent mode) so all connected devices route through it. This is fine. However, one PC (the main family PC running Win7) has multiple user accounts on it (i.e mine, my wifes and 4 kids) and I want to set it up so that my account and my wifes account bypass the proxy and go straight to the ADSL modem/router (and not through the Smoothwall proxy).
Smoothwall only lets you bypass it by MAC or IP address when running in transparent mode, so I was thinking of installating a second NIC in the family PC and then connecting it straight to the router.
My question is two fold: is this possible? And how do I configure it?
