I need some help for a friend please.

Question

+xrobwx71    836

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.

Thanks for all the responses! I'll pass this along! When he indicates to me which was the solution, I'll come back and choose the marked solved button.

Thanks again!

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?
