Could people that have used a few distributions help me out here...I'm
wondering how different OSes handle the addition of virtual IP addresses.
RedHat has a nice simple way of doing it (for the user) - but the
implementation is quite complex. You have an ifcfg-eth0-rangeN file,
which contains something like;
Where N is a range number. This would give sixteen IP aliases in the
172.24.50.16/28 network. How do BSD/Debian etc. do it ?
When I say 'free', I mean 'free': free from bond, of chain or command:
