How to force server to open connections via eth0:0 not eth0 ?


I got two IP's in my dedicated server.

Both are external IP's.

I would like to make connections using 2nd IP address under eth0:0 interface.

For example: when using "lynx" should display my 2nd IP.

How to do this using iptables ?

I found it:

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j SNAT --to-source <new_IP>
