IP Alias to Virtual Machine

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – Thank you in advance for any help you can give. I have searched and searched and have not found an answer to my issue. I'm not sure if this should be in virtualisation or networking - since it's mostly a networking question, I'll ask here. I have a rent-a-server with one NIC and two real-world IP addresses. The first IP, 69.xxx.xxx.xxx, is the actual IP address of the server. The second IP, 209.xxx.xxx.xxx, is an IP alias. The interface is defined as follows: # loopback interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # ethernet interface auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 69.xxx.xxx.xxx (HowTos)
