    Windows 10 Professional for Workstations - NIC Bonding Question?


    Does anyone know if Windows 10 Professional for Workstations supports NIC Bonding?

    I can do it with my Windows Server 2016 system, but want to update a cousin/other box to W 10 Pro for Workstation if that feature is available.

    Anyone know?

    Thanks, Stephen

    All Operating Systems allow for network adapters to be bridged. You just have to tell the OS what two adapters you want bridged to share a connection.

    I probably should have said NIC Teaming

    As we can see, from this thread

    networking - Is Windows 10 Software NIC Teaming now possible? - Super User

    It was in, then out in some 2015-2016 shenanigans ...

    If Windows 10 Professional for Workstations brings this back, then I'd be interested in purchasing, otherwise it
    forces me to have to look at Windows Server 2016 again ...

    ... So the question really is, does Windows 10 Professional for Workstations support NIC teaming or not...?

    Again it is called bridging. If you would look down, it tells you that workstation Operating Systems cannot be used as a server OS, because not everything is there. Teaming is if you want to Load Balance or for fallover and can only be done with a Server or Router based OS.
