Hi Folks,

I have a PC which is used as a proxy server. I wanted to install two network cards in the system and a single IP to be assigned.

Kindly let me know what is the procedure of configuring single IP in both the network cards.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know if that is possible. Why do you want to do that?

I don't think it is possible either. In an Ethernet network, IP addresses are linked to MAC addresses. As there are two MAC addresses you are going to need two IP addresses.

If you set the IP addresses manually I suspect you will get a duplicate IP address error. Try it and see.

Unless you are talking adapter teaming, which makes the two interfaces into one virtual interface for better performance, which does allow the assignment of a single ip address.

Give a person a fish, they eat for a day. Suggest they internet search and they learn a skill for a lifetime.
