Let's talk network load balancing .

    Let's talk network load balancing.....

    I'll spare the details, but among other things, I'm looking to get two 100Mb NICs setup in a local server with some means of loadbalancing. I know 2k server advanced and datacenter has NLB from MS, but I'm only running basic server on this machine.

    Any third party options? thanks!

    Let's clarify. Load balancing options for win2k server.

    You can go to shareware.com and search for load balancing software. There are a few nice 3rd party packages but they are expensive. I would not recommend implementing a freeware version of NLB on a production server.

    Windows Server 2003 Standard edition supports NLB out of the box. You could easily end up investing more money into a 3rd party solution for Win2000 than you would invest upgrading to Win2003 Standard edition.
