I need some help for a friend please.

Question

+xrobwx71

I have a server that I use to host a website it has 2 network cards running Windows 8.1.

My dilemma is when I download Torrents I of course use a VPN, while the VPN is connected the Web Site is no accessible.

Does anyone know of a way to have 1 network card dedicated to IIS and the second for everything else ? This way when the VPN is connected I can continue to download through networks card 2. Meanwhile Network card 1 keeps the correct IP and serves up IIS.

Thanks!

How about just host your website with a webhost or vps..  Why anyone would serve up anything off their home connection is beyond me..

 

As to binding a program to using specific nic.. You could try this

Or if you really really want to serve up your website - then just use a seedbox for your p2p stuff vs vpn.

Change the settings of the VPN to not use it as the default Gateway while it is established?

use a different computer. 

virtualize the setup to give one computer access to one card and another computer access to the other card. 

 

no way to multihome a windows computer properly/assigning services to cards.

yeah there really is not reason to host stuff of your home connection, unless it was an interface to something at home for your own personal use.  And then that access should be via a vpn and not open to the public anyway.

 

What host did he go with, shared or vps?

      Google Fi's VPN is exiting beta and coming to iPhone
      by Rich Woods

      Today, Google announced some privacy improvements to its Fi cellular service. While its VPN was introduced over two years ago in late 2018, it's apparently been in beta this whole time. After making an array of performance improvements, Google says that the VPN is coming out of beta on Android.



      Also, the VPN is expanding, as it's coming to iPhone. All Google Fi subscribers using an iPhone will start seeing the VPN this spring.

      If you're unfamiliar with VPNs, it stands for virtual private network, and if there's one thing that you need to know about it, it's that it boosts your security and privacy. It gives you an encrypted connection, so even if you're on a network that isn't secure, Google is offering you a layer of protection. It also means that sites can't track your location because they can't see your actual IP address. Lots of VPNs tend to make compromises when it comes to speed, but that's exactly what Google claims to have improved.

      And the fact that it's coming to iPhones is a big deal. iOS is an area that Google has struggled to bring to feature parity with Android on its Fi network. In fact, originally called Project Fi, it didn't even support iPhones at all (officially) until late November 2018, two weeks after the service's VPN was announced. Even then, iPhones didn't support some key features like carrier switching; presumably, that's not as big of a deal now since Google Fi ran off of T-Mobile's, Sprint's, and U.S. Cellular's networks, and the former two companies have merged into one.

      The other thing that the Mountain View firm is announcing today is a new privacy and security hub, which is coming to the Fi app on Android devices. It's meant to help you learn about the privacy and security features that you'll find on Google Fi, and you can manage those features, such as the VPN. Other features touted, which aren't new to today's announcement, include blocking spam calls, of which Google says that it blocks tens of thousands per day, and protection from theft techniques like SIM swaps, where someone might try to reassign your phone number to a different SIM and use it to gain access to your accounts.

      Having just moved house, I noticed the wifi in my study was patchy. I therefore invested in a TP Link Powerline (TL-WPA4220) to run from my router to my study.
       
      It works perfectly on all my personal devices (Windows, Apple, Android etc) with them all getting the full wifi speeds promised by my ISP (Vodafone), both over wifi and ethernet. 
       
      The main reason I installed this, however, was for a fast reliable connection to my work computer. But whether via wifi or ethernet I'm getting much slower speeds on my work laptop than my personal devices connected to the same powerline - even slower than before I installed it when I was working at the far edge of my router's range. I'll be getting 70mbps download and 25mbps upload speeds on my personal devices and 2mbps download and 5mbps upload on my work computer.
       
      I called my work IT, they suggested my ISP was throttling my use (when testing the connection on my work laptop we found that when I connected to my ISPs network / server the speed was as expected, but any other server was very slugglish, which led them to think this).
       
      I contacted by ISP who insist they're not throttling my use and it must be something to do with my employer's IT policy. They did give me a static IP address suggesting this might help (but it hasn't).
       
      Any ideas why this might be happening?My main suspicoion is that it's something to do with the VPN on my work laptop (zscaler), although when I tried installing a VPN on my own persional laptop it had no effect on speeds. How could my laptop / VPN even recognise that my internet is coming from a different source? Are there any known issues with powerlines accessing secure VPN networks?
       
      I'm being bounced around to different people none of whom have a clue, so any advice would be gratefully received!
