Description of problem:
I set up a machine to have two ip addresses (with redhat-config-network), one a
fake one (188.8.131.52) and one real internet address. The problem was it was
using the fake ip address when sending packets over the internet. The routing
table is fine.
This problem happened with the fake address being eth0 and the real internet
address being eth0:1. In order to solve this problem I had to switch them around.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The system has no idea which address to default to unless an application
requests a specific address or you set one for a route (see "man ip" for more
info). As such this isnt a bug.
There is nothing on the page except a pointer to a ps file, which apparently is
malformed because I can't read it.
