    [WinXP] How to Bind Multiple IP Addresses to Single NIC - Via DHCP?

    Hi all,

    i am doing some load testing where i need to create multiple concurrent
    TCP/IP connections to a server. The connections must originate from
    different IP addresses, because the server has logic built in where it
    will drop the first connection if a second connection comes in from the
    same address.

    i am trying to do this test from a single client (single NIC). i know
    that i can bind several different STATIC IP addresses to the card
    (TCP/IP Properties). However, as i am on a LAN where IP addresses are
    dynamically assigned (DHCP), there might be a risk of conflict if i
    manually assign some random static IP addresses.

    Therefore, is it possible to dynamically obtain and bind several IP
    addresses to a single NIC? How?



    TIA and Regards,
    Edwin

    Yes, if added manually,...never by DHCP.
    But it won't work anyway.
    Outbound traffic from a PC always comes from the Primary IP# of the Nic,...no
    matter how many IP#s are on the Nic.
