I have a SQL Server 2005 EE running the default instance.  Assuming I have an ip address of 192.168.1.1 already assigned on this server, is it possible to add a secondary IP address of 192.168.1.2 to this server, have have the same single instance listen on both IP.s?

Yes, you can. Also, you may use the computer name.

Here's a walkthough on adding a second IP address to your server (assuming you don't have it already):

http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/2003_Server/Q_24191493.html

Once you have a second IP address, you can open "SQL Server Configuration Manager", go to the protocols for your database instance, open "TCP/IP", and on the second tab, you can see all the IP addresses on your server. Just enable the second IP, set the port (default is 1433), and then restart your SQL Server instance - now it will be listening on the second IP address in addition to the first.

Thanks for your assistance.  This was indeed the correct work around to add the second IP.
