How do I add a second IP-address in Ubuntu 17.10 like the old days where you could add eth0:1, eth0:2 etc.
I've tried but lots of commands have been deprecated like ifup, ifdown etc. and the network settings doesn't seem to be the same as it used to. I might be wrong here but I can't seem to figure it out.
I have a network card eth0 where I want to add a second IP on the same subnet. If I add eth0:1 to /etc/network/interfaces but I can't seem to get the interface up.
Is there another way to do this permanently?
auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0:1 iface eth0:1 inet static address 10.100.1.39 netmask 255.255.255.0
I've tried to add the information on eth0 too but it doesn't seem to make a difference.
This if the output of ifconfig
eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet 10.100.1.38 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 10.100.1.255 inet6 fe80::215:5dff:fe00:1605 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x20<link> ether 00:15:5d:00:16:05 txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet) RX packets 496 bytes 248506 (248.5 KB) RX errors 0 dropped 4 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 241 bytes 34934 (34.9 KB) TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0
