Thumbs up How to create eth0:1 in ubuntu 11.10?


Hi,
I am a new user to linux. I ve been using it only for two months. My laptop(running Ubuntu 11.10) has an Ethernet Interface eth0. I dont want to assign a static ipaddress to eth0 instead i want to create a pseudointerface eth0:1. I dont want to lose this interface when i restart my laptop. It would be grateful if someone helps me with this. Thanks in advance.

Do the setup as root, if you do as normal user it won't keep the settings.

Regards

Assuming this post is still relevant to your version of Ubuntu then it should be useful.

It helps knowing what to search for at least. These are generally called "alias network interfaces" so gives you something to help you search. But also this might help specifically

Hope it helps
