Am sure that you can create multiple sockets and clients within the same application, so as long as you have them showing up in windows with different ip adresses I think it would be possible. Why not write something small to test it, it would just take a few lines of code.

Due to the nature of NIC teaming, you are probably better off writing such an application in the same language as the drivers (likely C/C++). Otherwise, you will probably have some unnecessary complexity and overhead just to wrap up the hardware-level drivers so you can use them in C#.

I thought there was NIC teaming built into certain instances of windows anyway....
