[thelist] IIS5: two sites on one box, with one ip

Two IP addresses are very easy. Add the second IP under advanced options
of TCP/IP properties. Then under IIS assign one IP address to main
virtual site and then assign the other to secondary.

hmm... good thinking. that could have been a problem. then would you
suggest i tell earthlink to...

1. use the same separate ip addresses
2. change the NAT table to point to the same box

...since i need to use SSL on BOTH websites?

would using two ip addresses be any less of a headache?

thanks for the info so far.
