I am running several Linux servers on Suse 6.2 with the 2.2.10 kernal.
I have been trying for some time, without success, to get 3 IP's to one
'testing' machine. The machine has 1 network card, and currently one IP
address (lets say 192.168.1.5) On NT the process of multiple IP's is a an
easy process, but no one I have spoken to appears to know what to do on
Linux. Surely to god this is possible.
Initially I tried to manually edit the /etc/rc.config file, but when I put
in a seocnd IP (lets say, 192.168.1.6) address it just bound itself to eth0,
and took over the IP of the machine.
Next I tried the ifconfig command. Most people whom I would usually
consider experts said this was the command, but were unable to help as to
the exact options to use. I tried a few options from the man file but to no
avail. Every time the second IP address just erased the 1st IP address
Any ideas ?
