iSCSI Initiator and multiple connections

I have setup an HP DL380 server with 2 NIC ports to connect via iSCSI to an HP X1600 storage server which also has 2 configured NIC ports for iSCSI.  I am able to get a connection but only 1 card is being used at a time.  When I click on the Properties of my connection and then the session and the MCS button within iSCSI Initiator it shows one connection.  When I try to add another one I get an error that says "too many connections".  HP said to just add another session which works for fail over but does not utilize both links when doing a file transfer.  I have also tried NIC teaming but I'm only getting 1GB of bandwidth on the receive side when I team so that didn't work either.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
