Assigning different source IP-addresses to outgoing TCP-connections RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Dear colleagues,

    Would anybody be so kind as to help me with the following question.

    There is a Windows Server with a network interface. The network interface has 32 IP-addresses (a pool). I need to assign different addresses to any outgoing TCP-connection from this server. Either it can be random or according to round-robin algorithm, but I need to use the whole pool of these IP-addresses for outgoing connections.

    How can I do that?

    Thank you.

    With best regards,

  • Hello,

    Which operating system are you using ? if server 2008 R2, the address closest to the default gateway is used as the outgoing IP address .

  • Thanks, I know, but how to change that behaviour?

    It's pretty simple to do that in Linux and FreeBSD, does Windows Server allow to do that?
