Hi Michael,

Been there, done that. I've got a few servers running Windows 2016/2019 
setup with multiple NICs and VLANs. Let's say it's very kludgy, in one 
case it took the better part of a day to convince the OS about correct 
routing. But it works. In Linux it takes a few seconds. Under XP and 
Vista it's also a snap. However, those systems, like Windows 7, are 
unsecure and nothing useful really don't run there anymore. Windows 7 is 
going the same way, slowly, but inevitably.

Best regards,
