Utilization of all IP's on my dedicated Server (CentOS 4)


Hello, I want to give u a complete info before the question

I have a Dedicated server, with CentOS 4.x installed. With 8 IP (For utilization).
There was No GUI (Just a webserver with WHM AND CPANEL)..

In between i was having a very bad connection (And always have)..So i thought to Utilize my server Bandwidth. What i done is Researched for the Remote system.. and i got the FreeNX.. But i have to install GNOME to access with FreeNX.. so i did.. Then i installed Mozilla Firefox.. Every thing Went okay i was browsing and other other..

But i have brothers too.. I access Secure site.. Which says that u access Only one account on One IP.. If they detect Same IP for the Account they will ban both. Here it is serious consideration...

Now I have 8 IP.. How can i use them....How can i appy them to my browsing....I normally login as a ROOT in FreeNX.. Can i create account or other stuf...
It should show me Different IPs when i login.. like i will check it via whatismyip .com

How to create that.. Please give step by step or atleast a short info.. Thx ...

Irrespective of which IP you connect to on your server, please understand that ANY outgoing traffic (originating from the server) will go out using the Machine / True / Real IP address of the server.

You can check which IP is the real IP address of your machine with 'ifconfig'
It will show you something like this:

Code:
# ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:10:A4:C1:EB:24
          inet addr:192.168.1.9  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:262216 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:269925 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:127726157 (121.8 MiB)  TX bytes:29231225 (27.8 MiB)
          Interrupt:11 Base address:0x4000

eth0:0    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:10:A4:C1:EB:24
          inet addr:192.168.1.1  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          Interrupt:11 Base address:0x4000

eth0:1    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:10:A4:C1:EB:24
          inet addr:192.168.1.2  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          Interrupt:11 Base address:0x4000

eth0:2    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:10:A4:C1:EB:24
          inet addr:192.168.1.3  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          Interrupt:11 Base address:0x4000
From the example above you can see that 192.168.1.9 is the real / machine IP address of the computer, while the additional IP addresses are virtual interfaces and have a ':' followed by a number to distinguish them as Virtual.

All outgoing traffic (unless it is in reply to a connection on the respective IP Address) will go out only from the real IP address of the server.

In short: it's not a GNU/Linux issue. What Osdeals tries to say is your server appears to have multiple virtual ethernet devices (eth0:n). That does not equal having multiple public IP addresses. If you want multiple public IP addresses you best contact your hosting provider and see what they could offer (charge ;-p) you.

...but then again you appear to be a bit impatient with your shouting and having moved forward to scenario http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=519951 already, so this thread is basically dead, right?

This thread is not dead..
I want to move soon but i want this info.. Because i will be sticking with the same OS again..
Currently i am facing problem Installing Bittorrent clients on centos 4
I do not know how to run there.. It doesn't download anything. I don't know why but the browsing stuff and wget works fien.. How can install a bittorrent client..I installed the RPM but how to run now ? i can't run.. I tried Utorrent.exe with wine.. It opened but after adding the torrent file also it is not downloading it.. Means there is no specific error. But when i check for the openport. It shows me Open on the web and working..
I will soon shift from this server because they take more charges if they found problem.. Like 75$ per hour.. If anybody can personally help me i will provide him the info..

That's not what this thread was about.
Should ask a mod to move that post to a new thread.

hmmm okay i am back again with the same question...
I would like to explain this time in good and detailed manner..

Base System Configuration:
* AMD 64 Athlon 3200+
* 80GB Hard Drive
* 1024MB RAM
* Bandwidth: 1500GB
* IP Addresses: 8 (5 usable)
* Private VLAN
* Basic Resource Monitoring
* FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Linux, Windows*
* 100% Self Managed and Dedicated

This is a dedicated server specification..
What exactly i want to know that is

i have 5 usable IP... Which i can use in WHM/cpanel which can be alloted to a particular domain (known as fix ip for domain) but i want this feature when i remote the machine (dedicated box) via vnc, Nx clients etc etc. What exactly is that suppose i have 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.6 ip range (usable) now (ASSUME AS PUBLIC)
i will try to connect the server through nx or vnc with a ip like
1.1.1.4 then when i will be in it should be the 1.1.1.4 ONLY it should not be other ip... ( i will check this via whatismyip . com which i will put into the browser or lynx browser doing ssh or in desktop environment..
See i have 3 brothers. Each should and must have a different IP connection on the dedicated for browsing because of which our mail account will not create problems..Also we will do some projects there of our college. The main thing is browsing the web.. We will be browsing it from the University via vnc to our server. Please explain i am still not able to understand it.. What exactly it is called

The more you have explained your "dilemma" the confusing you have made it for people here on the forums. I believe you have a misunderstanding of basic networking. I would recommend you read some intro guides on linux networking and basic IP routing. this way you can properly phrase your questions regarding these matters.
