Multiple IPs Not Working...

Post by Laurent Saehyun K » Sat, 23 Aug 1997 04:00:00

I've been trying to add several addresses to the interface.  I've done this
many times but my newly upgraded 2.5.1 does'nt let me add addresses.

This is what I do:

ifconfig hme0:1 netmask up

Then I also make /etc/hostname.hme0:1 with in it.  The
DNS is working fine.

When I restart, Solaris seems to forget above settings.

Help me!!!

DNS is not runnign when the interfa]ces are configured.  Names listed in
/etc/hostname.* must be in /etc/hosts unless they're IP addresses.

1. 4.2 nic aliasing, multiple IPs, one nic does not work???

I just upgraded to FreeBSD 4.2 from 4.1.  I had 5 IPs assigned to one
nic on 4.1, one main, 4 alias.  Now on 4.2, it will not accept aliases
to the nic.  When I boot with the config in override /etc/rc.conf, it
assigns the main IP and the first alias, but not the other three.  If
I try to manually configure from the IPs to the nic, it comes back

ifconfig: inet: bad value

I have looked every where I can think of for help, both on and off
line and tried every combination I can think of, but nothing works.
It all worked fine under 4.1.  Did something get changed in 4.2 to
effect how you assign aliases to one nic????

I have asked all I know who work with FreeBSD and they are as baffled
as I am.  Any help or suggestions even if I have already tried them
will be appreciated.  I keep thinking I have made some type of
configuration error or something simple that I am missing, but, search
as I might for a problem, I come up empty handed.

4.2 did not come up with a different way to alias a nic, did it???

Thanks in advance,
