Hi folks,

Windows Server 2008 R2 (Hyper-V)

I've read through the majority of the docs here but I cant seem to find a similar scenario.
The problem I am facing is this:

We have a few virtual machines on a single server. Two of them are webservers.
Both of them have private IP's and one is facing the internet via a NAT and a public single address tied to it. The other is internal only for now but uses a different gateway (we have two internet links in the office). Both servers are using the same NIC (HP Proliant DL380 with a single multifunction two ports)
Now, occasionally, when I try to visit the non-facing internet site which I have to refresh the page a few times to get it to actually show the page. Its running Oracle Application Server with JDE.

The question is this, since both VM's are using the same NIC and both have port 80 open, are they battling for port 80 and that's why I sometimes have to refresh so many times? Or is this some sort of Oracle Application Issue?

I can move the VM's to another machine that can have port 80 dedicated to one NIC but I dont want to do that if I dont have to.

Thanks guys!
