Insert 3 IP addresses in Windows Server 2008

Specs: N/A
Dear all,
I have got a problem here with my new Windows Server 2008 which I like to solve within this week.
What I want to do:
I have got a new Windows Server 2008 and a couple of IP addresses which different users/suppliers will use to get into my server via remote control.
So far there is only one IP address used for the admin. I like to input/map the other IP addresses also to the server so that the users can log on at the same time.
Question: Can somebody tell me where I need to input the IP addresses (static)? Under server management I find „Roles“ of the Windows Server under which I can create the DNS and DHCP Server. Do I need to install this first?
I would be very grateful if somebody could let me know.

Cheers, BB

You can assign more than one IP to a server/network card if you want, but for what you are trying to do it isn't necessary.

You can still have more than one person connect to the same IP address. The limitation of connections isn't based on IP address, it is based on the licensing model of remote desktop.

Maybe you could provide a bit more info on why you think you need more than one IP address assigned to the server.

Thanks very much Glen. Yes, buying licenses makes most sense if the numbers of user will grow. But I also want to know how to assign 2 additional IPs to my server. This is exactly what I am trying to find out. I just need to know how and where to insert the IP addresses starting from the Server Manager. I know that I need to set up roles to the server such as the Network Policiy and Access Services. But then I can move on. Thanks for any help Glen. Much appreciated.

BBJones you assign those ips to the nic in advanced properties.

But this does not accomplish what you think it does. I believe you are confused about how remote access works.

I would suggest you web search configuring RRAS
Here is a check list for you to review

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

As wanderer said, if you are sure you want to assign multiple IPs to a nic, go to the TCP/IP Properties, click Advanced and then the IP Settings tab. You can add additional IP addresses in there.

Good luck.
