IP Alias on Fedora Core 6 not working right, Operation not permitted


Good day.

I am relatively new to Linux so please bear with me.

I am trying to set up my linux box as a gateway. I have 2 NICs one is for my internal Lan and the other to the internet. I have two public IPs and I want to set it up so that hitting any of the two IP goes to my FC6 box.

Ive setup the following scripts:
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth2
DEVICE=eth2:0
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=static
IPADDR=202.91.162.50
NETMASK=255.255.255.224
GATEWAY=202.91.162.30

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth2:0
DEVICE=eth2:0
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=static
IPADDR=202.91.162.51
NETMASK=255.255.255.224
GATEWAY=202.91.162.30

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth4
DEVICE=eth4
HWADDR=00:0a:5e:78:43:18
ONBOOT=yes
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
IPADDR=192.168.1.1
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
TYPE=Ethernet

ifconfig:
eth2 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:14:BF:598:BC
inet addr:202.91.162.50 Bcast:202.91.162.255 Mask:255.255.255.224
inet6 addr: fe80::214:bfff:fe59:d8bc/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1

eth2:0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:14:BF:598:BC

UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
Interrupt:74 Base address:0xc100


As you can see, I tried setting up an alias on my eth2. eth2:0 actually goes up but when I try to ping my public IP's from within my FC6 box, it says something like :

ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted

And when I tried to ssh from a remote machine (outside my network, from internet), I can get in only if I use IP assigned to eth2, but not the IP assigned to eth2:0.

I want to set up this IP on this same box so I can forward ssh requests to another linux box on my network.

Need help badly. Thanks

hi.
think that either you typed wrong data or it is realy wrong.

If you have 2 nic's, it MUST begin at 0 (zero), say:

eth0
eth1
[..]

and for the aliases, it must follow these rules:
eth0:0
eth0:1

obviously, you must change the 0 (zero) by your real nic identity number.

do:

dmesg | grep -i eth

and

lspci

to read HOW your Linux is naming your nic's.
