    is there a way to have 2 ip addresses on a single interface?

    i tried this:
    [email protected]:~# cat /etc/network/interfaces

    # The primary network interface
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
    address 10.1.1.203
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    gateway 10.1.1.1
    dns-nameservers 206.176.129.2
    address 192.168.150.254
    netmask 255.255.255.0


    and the result when i restarted networking was:

    [email protected]:~# /etc/init.d/networking restart
    * Reconfiguring network interfaces...
    /etc/network/interfaces:15: duplicate option
    ifdown: couldn't read interfaces file "/etc/network/interfaces"
    /etc/network/interfaces:15: duplicate option
    ifup: couldn't read interfaces file "/etc/network/interfaces"
    ...fail!

    do i need to configure sub-interfaces like on WAN router interfaces?

    thanx in advance...jeff

    Here's an example that I use on my local system. Keep in mind that I run a local DNS server also.
    Code:
    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
    # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
    
    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    
    # The primary network interface
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
            address 172.16.3.75
            netmask 255.255.255.0
            network 172.16.3.0
            broadcast 172.16.3.255
            gateway 172.16.3.254
            # dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
            dns-nameservers 172.16.3.70
            dns-search tiempo.loc
    
    auto eth0:0
    iface eth0:0 inet static
            address 172.16.3.76
            netmask 255.255.255.0
            network 172.16.3.0
            broadcast 172.16.3.255
            gateway 172.16.3.254
            # dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
            dns-nameservers 172.16.3.70
            dns-search tiempo.loc
