We have an IIS server running windows 2000 with three IPs as a result of consolidating four different web servers into a single box. One of the services provided is a web front end for financial and student records. The back end server is in another county and we have no control over it. There have been several issues but we have eliminated most. Now we have discovered our server seems to randomly pick one of the three IPs when it makes a request to the other server. Since the other server will only accept requests from a single IP, most transactions fail. How can we tell our server to make all of its requests from a single IP? If this is an IIS 101 question, please forgive me. I know next to nothing about IIS and need to fix this immediately. Thanks. rt

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Is it possible to work with the people who run the back-end server and have them accept a range of IPs instead of a single IP? This would be the simplest configuration.

    My first suggestion was to ask them to accept all three of our IPs. They made it clear this wouldn't happen. We "fixed" the problem. We have reconfigured our server to eliminate the other addresses. It was our only choice. Tuesday afternoon my manager said he wanted it fixed yesterday. When I couldn't find anything on limiting the request IP I started feverishly working on reconfiguring the server to kill two addresses. This application now works but we are still picking up the pieces. Thanks for the suggestion. rt
