Ordinarily, you can set up to five IP addresses per network card installed, under the settings for TCP/IP (in Control Panel, double-click the Network icon, then click the Protocols tab; on the Protocols tab, select TCP/IP Protocols, then click the Properties button; on the IP Address tab, click Advanced...). However, it is possible to add more than five IP addresses to a network card by modifying the registry.
Windows NT 4.0 has no limitation on the number of IP addresses that can be bound to a NIC. The limitation is on system resources.
Use the Registry Editor (REGEDT32.EXE) to add your IP addresses and subnet masks, as follows:
WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious, system-wide problems that may require you to reinstall Windows NT to correct them. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use this tool at your own risk.
