Hello all, I have waited to post this as I wanted to ensure I tried everything I could to ensure as legit a post as possible and without posting whats already been posted. I have a problem with multiple ip's on one nic. I'm running Fedora12 with ISPConfig 2. My server has been running fine for about a year now and I have a customer who would like a website with it's own SSL. I understand that I will need a dedicated IP for this and that I have. I also understand that I need to add a virtual IP to eth0 and that I did. I followed the instructions given at: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-centos-5.3-x86_64-ispconfig-2-p3 and to my dismay it works after I restart the network and until the server is rebooted and then eth0 takes the ip on eth0:0 and binds it to eth0. Heres what I did maybe I'm doing somthing wrong: cp ifcfg-eth0 ifcfg-eth0:0 vi ifcfg-eth0:0 changed the DEVICE: from eth0 to eth0:0 changed IP saved and exit. Restarted network ifconfig all is good it now shows eth0 bound to the proper ip eth0:0 bound to the proper ip then I reboot the server when it comes up ifconfig shows eth0 bound to the newly added ip given to eth0:0 and eth0:0 no longer shows up. I have searched and searched and I just can't seem to understand why eth0 is doing this. Seems I'm doing somthing wrong for sure just don't know what! Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.
