Assigning IP addresses to game server processes


I have recently acquired a dedicated Linux server and am installing 2 game servers as well as TeamSpeak...my question is this:

Is it possible to assign each of those servers a different IP address?

I am running RedHat 9.0 and have a range of 10 IPs to use

any help at all would be appreciated

Welcome to LQ.

You can bind multiple IP addresses to one or more NICs, then depending on the configuration available for the servers you may be able to tell the process to only listen on one IP address.

The servers I want to assign IPs to are Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory , Call of Duty, and TeamSpeak...
I am pretty much a newbie as far as linux goes so if anyone has links to step by step instructions it would be great

For the NIC aliases if you ony have one see:
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...TERFACES-ALIAS

I've never run either of those game servers so you'll need to check their documentation.
