there is no default vserver command. Are you talking about a virtual machine?

you got 3 choices (maybe more?):
1) install vmware-server
2) install the Xen package through yum or pirut
3) install Virtual Box

Or are you talking about a Virtual private server using multiple IP addresses on different NIC's?

Hi Micro420,
What i need to do is, create a virtual server on a single NIC. This virtual server will serve as dumping folders which client can't view my real box files/filesystem via ftp or sftp connection. I already have existing OS (RHEL4). Plus i like to define global IP for this virtual server.

Thank you for urgent help.

I'm still a little confused at what you are aiming for. You can set up a standard FTP/SFTP and isolate that folder/directory using standard Linux permissions, or even with ACL's.

Now if you want to isolate it some more, then you would want to try the virtualization route where you have an OS inside your RHEL4. I recommend getting vmware-server from vmware.com. You can then assign that virtual machine a real public/global IP address (bridged networking with virtual server) that can be accessed from the internet. At the same time, you can put your REAL server on a private network, thus only exposing your virtual machine to the internet.
