[NetBindings]

The [NetBindings] section contains entries for disabling, enabling, and demoting binding rules for network components such as services, protocols, and adapters.

You can list each entry more than once in this section, but you must list the network components that comprise the binding order/path in the following order:


          network_service
          , 
          network_protocol
          , 
          network_adapter
        

The binding order/path must always start with a client/service (if one exists) and end with an adapter. Setup ignores incorrectly-specified binding orders/paths. If you list more than one item, separate the values with commas and enclose the entire string of values in quotation marks.

Define network services in the [NetServices] section, network protocols in the [NetProtocols] section, and network adapters in the [NetAdapters] section.
