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

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.
