 Post subject: Multiple IP's with D3Server3

Hi guys.

I know D3Server3 can use an alternate IP in it's settings. I have a multi-homed server with multiple NIC's. When creating a game to host, I don't see where I can add an alternate IP for a particular game. I will end up hosting different games on different NIC's with different IP's.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for everyone's time.

Its the -useip ***.***.***.*** command line variable. It will bind D3 to a specific IP, note that in order to run multiple servers on the same IP they have to be on different ports.

Krom, I think he's talking about Hunter's D3Server tool, where the alternate IP setting is global (applies to all the games launched through it).

You could launch a separate game manually (config file with the \"-useip\" command), or try to run separate instances of D3Server (although I'm not sure if you can).

My question is: why do the games end up on different NICs, with different IPs? That seems odd...

Not if he has multiple pipes to the internet.

Hi guys.

Thanks for the quick reply. I should have clarified it a bit. Yes, there are multiple pipes hooked up to this box. Is there another server tool that will handle the scripting for me and allow me to specify different ip's for different games?

Thanks again.
