Here's the scenario, nothing serious, just curious:
My friend owns a Gaming server. He has multiple ip addresses and it's set to 1 box/1 network card which is running Linux (backbone is a OC-192).
So when people connect to 188.8.131.52 it'll go to that box, and when people go to 184.108.40.206, it'll go to the same box, and when people go to 220.127.116.11 it'll go to the same box, and so on and so forth. Again the box has only 1 network card.
What's the process on setting that kind of thing up? (details are much appreciated)
Of course you have to purchase those ip addresses from the provider, right?
I think that's pretty cool.
