openbsd ifconfig alias question
I have a machine running 126.96.36.199 with web and mail and I am trying to consolidate this server by transferring it to another machine 188.8.131.52 but when I add the alias using ifconfig inet alias 184.108.40.206 netmask 255.255.255.255 then reboot none of the ip's on the interfaces work. I take it out and the original ip works again 220.127.116.11 . Now here is the weird thing, if I use the same command ifconfig inet alias 18.104.22.168 netmask 255.255.255.255 but use a different ip like 22.214.171.124 both work on the same interface is their something that could keep this address 126.96.36.199 from working on the same interface. I have never seen this issue before.
Thanks in advance....
