I was wondering if it is possible, e.g. to assign/reserve one static IP to a computer when it's running windows and assign a second static IP to the same computer/MAC address when it's running Linux?
I have seen this been done for my computer under several university-wide networks. That is, the same NIC is assigned one stable IP for windows, and a different one for Linux. I don't know if it is just dynamic IP being remembered for a real long time, or something else is going on. But the university network is able to give me two specific IP's depending on the OS that is running.
My questions are,
What kind of network administration technology is used to differentiate OSes and assign IP's based on OS brands?
Can I (and how to) do the same on my own network using a router?
