Windows 2000 and Windows XP do not have binding requirements. If you have
more than one network card installed in a Windows 2000 or Windows XP
environment, you can create a new connection to the network card you want to use
in
Network and Dial-up Connections. For more information, refer to the
Windows 2000 or Windows XP Help.
Proxy Recording
With proxy recording, client/server traffic is routed through a proxy computer.
Proxy recording occurs at the OSI application layer and involves receiving and
sending socket transactions. With proxy recording, you can record conversations
between multiple, specific clients and servers (that is, when the
Any

choice in the

tab for either clients or servers would be impractical).
The following examples show when you might need multiple clients and servers:
If different user groups (such as order entry clerks and customer service
representatives) issue requests to the server at the same time during a single
recording session
If requests are being sent to different databases (such as an Inventory database
and a Human Resources database) located on different computers
NOTE: This document uses the word "proxy" to refer to the computer that
performs proxy recording. It does not refer to a Web proxy server.
