Description Eric Jorgensen 2000-05-01 19:46:51 UTC
Linuxconf only allows the administrator to enter 10 ip aliases per
interface. 10 is probably OK for most users but the kernel limit is 255,
and the linuxconf limit is a hinderance when running for example several
ftp servers on the same system. - requires administrator to use netcfg
(which past experience suggests is not sane) or manually create ifcfg-
eth0:11 on up.
