In this video, Scott describes a web hosting scenario where a single network interface would need multiple IPv4 addresses. You will learn additional functionality of the netsh command, used in a previous segment, as we demonstrate how to configure as many additional addresses as your circumstances may require.
- [Instructor] We have looked at how to assign…an IP address to a network interface card, or NIC,…but sometimes it's helpful to assign…more than one address to a single…physical network adapter if one server…is responsible for multiple network streams,…especially when they all use very little…bandwidth or need a dedicated path into the server.…For example, a web server that's hosting…a single website doesn't make that server…work very hard, and it doesn't use…a lot of network pipe either.…
A web server that's running eight websites…may be just starting to effectively use…one network adapter, but each website…might want to be identified…with its own separate IP address.…Adding IP addresses to a NIC…is easily done using the netsh command,…so let's switch back over to our Server here,…and even though this server does have…the Desktop Experience, we can still…use command shells for administration.…So, I'm going to close out these graphic tools.…
Opening the appropriate command shell…is easily done by right-clicking…on the Windows button, and selecting Command Prompt Admin.…
