So I know you can add multiple IP addresses to a single NIC in Windows, but is there a way to tell that system which IP address to use for outgoing communication? For example, lets say I assign the following IP addresses to my XP Box >
but I only want the destination host to see that I'm coming from 10.1.1.4?
So if I telnet to 10.1.1.200, it thinks I'm coming from 10.1.1.4

Fault tolerance. It's called multi-homing IIRC.
If the physical NIC fails, then connectivity is lost. If there is a logical problem on one IP address, in theory the other address can take over. But it's a far more complicated subject than that!
