Hello Experts,

Is there a speed benefit to bridging physical NICs in server 2008, is it anything like NIC teaming? What are the benefits of bridging?

Thanks, Gary

Not unless you need to bridge two networks together. It won't give you more speed if that's what you're thinking. About the only thing 2 nics are good for is having the internet on one and your local network on the other, then you can use a good software firewall to firewall your network.
