There was actually no 5 IP Limit under the previous version of IIS, either -
if you knew how to go into the registry to enter the additional IP
addresses. I ran 27 of them on one machine in the previous version of NT.
However - at that time there was an issue with limitations of some NIC's not
accepting the maximum number of IP addresses possible.... there were some
Cards that would give you problems when you went over 16 IP addresses. This
wasn't a limitation of NT, it was a problem with the NIC. It's possible
that the problem with the additional IP's being experienced in this
situation under NT 4.0 could be a problem with the NIC in this case also...
Has anyone heard of this still being an issue under NT 4.0?
