Windows Xp and 7 - Can different host names be configured for each NIC?
Posted on 2012-03-09
Our DHCP system can only keep track of one name per IP per laptop. If a user has a wired connection and a wireless connection, it can only keep track of one, not both. We're considering purchasing an application that monitors activity on all active NICs on the laptops. We're considering a work around by applying a separate host name to each nic if that's possible on windows Xp and 7 laptops.
Is there a way to configure separate host names to each NIC on the OS so that the DHCP system will obtain a different name for each NIC?
