Multiple IP addresses


I am running redhat 9 and would like to configure my eth0 to have multiple IP addresses.

I know this can be done using Windows but am unsure whether this is possible in redhat 9.

How can I do this?

Thanks
James

Give this a try:

/sbin/ifconfig eth0:0 192.168.1.100
/sbin/ifconfig eth0:1 192.168.1.101

Then try:

/sbin/ifconfig eth0

to see if it worked.

Good luck.

I have gotten this to work.

ifconfig eth0:1 192.168.1.101 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255

I have been using this to virtual host a web site and haven't had any problems.

You may want to add this to your rc.local file if you want it to continue if you restart.

Bug in redhat 9??

I managed to configure two IP addresses and could access the Internet at that time

After some weeks, I could not connect to the Internet unless I deactivate the eth0:1. Then later reactivating it and it would be OK

Is this suppose to happen anyway?
