As a clarification on this topic: We will be implementing ip address labels, as defined by iproute2's "ip address [...] label eth0:XXX" command (man ip-address). Not to be confused with ifconfig's legacy method of using aliased or virtual interfaces, which behave almost like a real interface.
The newer 'ip' utility does not use the legacy concept of alias interfaces. However, it supports assigning arbitrary names to the interfaces, called 'labels'. Both methods have in common that they allow to assign multiple IP addresses to an interface, which can be referenced by name. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1743200 Title: No support for interface labels To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/netplan/+bug/1743200/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
