Description Amit Shah 2008-11-13 03:36:41 EST
I'm using the F10 PR KDE spin.

NetworkManager doesn't support IP aliases (eg, eth0:0) where multiple IPs can be assigned to the same NIC/MAC address.
Comment 1 Dan Williams 2008-11-13 09:55:08 EST
Aliasing is deprecated in general.  You can add multiple IP addresses to the _same_ device using /sbin/ip manually, or by adding multiple addresses in the NetworkManager connection editor in the IPv4 pane.  You don't need to use aliases at all.
Comment 2 Amit Shah 2008-11-14 01:57:59 EST
Assigning multiple addresses or aliasing gives same effect. However, how to have all the IPs assigned to a NIC active at the same time? I don't see how that can be done in Network Manager (one dhcp, one static or both static or both dhcp, etc).
