Hello all,

I am looking for a method to control virtual IPs (IP aliases) like an real interface with ifconfig/ip or ifup/-down.

The reason: I want to run a BIND on 2 machines with 2 separate IP addresses and on shared (service) IP address.

In other Linux distributions it goes like (i.e.)
ifconfig eth0:1 address netmask
ifconfig eth0:1 up

That doesn't work in SLESS 11. I can create a virtual interface and use it but I cannot take ist down or up independed from the parent interface (i.e. eth0).

I appreciate any answers !

Thanks in advance !
