I have a server with one interface and many virtual web hosts.
I have been given class C network to use for the virtual
web hosts and jails on the server. How to i tell the interface
that all addresses of some A1.A2.A3.A4 0xFFFFFF00 network belong to the interface. Do i specify 250-some aliases?
Or there is a better way?
Unfortunately, there is no built-in solution I know of to add aliases in bulk - you need to issue individual ifconfig commands. As such, you can do it on the command-line using a loop such as this:
for (( foo = 1; foo < 255; foo++ )); \ do ifconfig fxp1 alias 172.16.100.$foo netmask 0xffffffff; \ done
This will add the aliases 172.16.100.1 through 172.16.100.254 to the fxp1 interface. All you need to do is change the command to reflect your requirements for the network number and interface name, and you should be good to go. You can add this command into /etc/rc.local to have it run at startup.
