on a single interface?

ethernet is CSMA i.e. one at a time.
The only thing you consider is ARP call since Solaris store the ARP
table in kernel space (which is very efficient but also very limited,
not like a router). Extra ARP call is required if you are using e.g.
eth0:8191 and talk to a lot of machines.
After recently installing Netscape Commerce server (non-secure) on
Windows NT, I find it appears to be limited to 16 virtual IP numbers.
Is this really true or is there some other way to add more than 16?
Is NT itself limited to 16 IPs?
What about adding additional ethernet cards? Would that allow for
