Vitrual 2008 R2 server with multiple IP Addresses, How to make each IP appear Static i.e. Not Looped Back

Hi All..

Ok I just purchased a Virtual windows 2008 R2 Server with 3 IP Addresses. 1 is configured as the Default IP address and the other 2 appear to be pointing back to the Default. I believed they are 'Looped' back to the Default.

I want to Create 3 separate Login ID's on this machine and I want each ID to be associated with a different IP address.  

Is there a way to 'Isolate' each of these IP Addresses.

BTW.. I can use RDP to log into each IP Address but if I 'Ask' Google .. "What is my IP" ... it always come back with the default IP Address and not the one that I logged in to..

Thanks in advance

While RDS does support virtual IP addresses, they cannot be statically mapped to user accounts. There is no good way to do what you want.

I agree with cliff ip addresses cannot be assigned for different users
As for the 2 spare network adapters you will have to talk with your supplier and get the additional ip addresses for the other 2 adapters and use them to talk to a storage array or other (internal) virtual servers in their plant.

David, if you don't mind I will award Cliff the points. He was the First one to 'Bare the Bad News' :)

I agree with Cliff.  What you could use the other IP addresses are for things such as websites, etc. where you could bind a site to a specific IP.  Unfortunately this cannot be done with RDP.
