Hello, I'm trying to setup multiple IP boxes using FreeBSD 5.2-Release.
If I enter the ifconfig sis0 alias0 inet x.x.x.x 255.255.255.255 I get a bad value error. Similarly, if I put it in /etc/rc.conf with the prerequisite underscores and reboot the machine, the resulting ifconfig -a only shows the primary IP address. Did the procedure change in the 5.x series? A look at the FreeBSD handbook on line still shows this to be the way to accomplish this: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/configtuning-virtual-hosts.html I found that I can use ifconfig sis0 inet x.x.x.x 255.255.255.255 alias. It will add one additional IP to the system, but if I try to add two, I lock up the Ethernet connection. (I've now got to drive back down to the co-lo facility and reboot two of the machines because of it.) Anyone else ran into this issue? Anyone found the solution? Thanks in advance.
