Thread: multiple ethernet cards, can putty bind to one

  1. multiple ethernet cards, can putty bind to one

    I have to nics in my PC - nic1 is behind the firewall (lan IP) and
    nic2 is not (public IP)
    The remote server is on the same lan with the PC, but putty always
    tries to use the public IP, which fails - the server doesn't allow it.
    If I disable nic2, putty uses nic1 and everything works fine.
    How can I bind putty to always use nic1?

    This is normally a matter for your OS and not the application.
    Maybe you have an incorrect netmask defined on nic1.
