Use 2nd NIC for Remote Desktop

November 26, 2012 at 19:31:00
Specs: Win7 Ultimate, INTEL Core i5 3750K
We use a computer to produce video which is streamed to an internet server on our LAN. We would like to remote the operation of the production program. Can we use the second NIC on the computer m/b to set up Remote Desktop? We want to avoid using extra bandwidth. Both machines Win7 Ultimate.

You have two internet connections? If not its pointless.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

I'm guessing that I didn't give enough information, based on Wanderer's answer.

We have only one internet connection, but the computers are at the same location and could easily be connected either via crossover or via a second LAN (local only) which already exists on the premise.

Remote desktop implies remote not local access. You are talking about local access which is why we set up a LAN [local area network]

Put a switch in. Connect the second lan port to the switch and any other pcs you wish to connect to the server but not the internet. Assign ip addresses to all and you have a local lan.

Maybe I'm reading that second post of the OP's wrong wanderer but the impression I'm getting is the two computers in question are already in a LAN which means you don't need a second NIC to have them communicate.

Are the two computers in question already in a LAN and able to communicate with each other?

How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
