different IP address for windows users

Is there a way to give different IP addresses to different users on the same Windows XP computer.

Either Pro or Home as i have both available to install

Interesting problem, it took me awhile to think of an answer.

I know of no built-in ability to do what you are asking, however, I think I have a solution.

What you can do is have batch files that run for each user at logon. In the batch file, put something like this:

netsh interface ip set address name="Local Area Connection" static 1
Of course filling in your values for the IP address and gateway.

That should set the interface to whatever you want when the user logs in. And a different batch file for each user with different values would allow you to give each user their own IP (even though the machine would have a different IP at boot time).
