2 DHCP IPs, one NIC?


I am trying to get a single physical 3com PCI NIC to obtain 2 DHCP IPs. One as the NICs address and a second DHCP IP as it's alias. I am trying to do this in OpenBSD 3.6 (alpha), but i am interested even if it can only be done in linux. I haven't tried this yet and was wondering if it was possible, the NIC i am wanting to do this with will be my ISP external NICs and i would like the one nic to obtain two DHCP IPs from my ISP. Just an idea, if anyone can figure how to do it, i thank you in advance.

See man dhclient.conf and the "pseudo" option..

Of course your ISP will need to play along too..
