Two Different IP Address's.
« on: February 02, 2018, 06:37:26 PM »

Is it possible to have Two Different IP Address's on one computer.

Problem on my new backup server the network card is on a DMZ from my hardware firewall, 176.16.0.1 range on a dedicated port, No normal Internet access .

I want to be able to do the operating system updates.
So could I have a plug in WiFi dongle on IP = 192.168.0.1 range ? .
I do not want to keep changing the adapters config.

Yes.

Just remember that the one configured for Internet access should be defined as the default gateway.

Hi

I hope you donít mind, but your server should still be able to access updated normally

Dmz does not stop internet access, it removes all barriers from the router/firewall that could potentially stop any traffic.

Be very careful with dmz to anything. In a commercial environment we never dmz anything but setup rules for only thatís needed

Many thanks

It worked ok, There is a convenient USB socket on the top on the server case so I plugged the WiFi dongle into that, configured it and up-dated the server OS updates then un-plugged it until next time, I will not leave it plugged in .

@ d2d4j   John will send a pm.
