Add Multiple IP's to a Server


To temporarily add additional IP's use the following commands:

ifconfig eth0:### netmask

EX: ifconfig eth0:199 netmask

  • eth0:### can be anything usually the last octet in the IP address
  • netmask is the same unless other specified by Krypt Support
  • If Krypt server is allocated 3 IP addresses, more IP's can be requested by submitting a support ticket

To permanately add the IP address to be bounded upon startup, edit /etc/rc.d/rc.local and copy and paste the above ifconfig command into the bottom of the file.

Method 2:

1. enter"cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts"

2. enter "cp ifcfg-eth0 ifcfg-eth0:1"

3. edit the file "vi ifcfg-eth0:1" and modify DEVICE, and IPADDR


4. restart the network service "/sbin/service network restart"
