I have an issue with routing that I just can't figure out.
What I have at the moment is a box set up with an IP and route as
follows (some of the details have
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use
126.96.36.199 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0
188.8.131.52 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.252 U 0 0 0
184.108.40.206 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.224 U 0 0 0
0.0.0.0 220.127.116.11 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:05:1C:0B:48:A8
inet addr:18.104.22.168 Bcast:22.214.171.124
As can be seen from above the default route is set up to go to a
gateway on a static route.
What I want to do is add an ip alias to eth0 with an ip address of
126.96.36.199 and have it route out through the same gateway.
If I simply do "ifconfig eth0:1 188.8.131.52 netmask 255.255.255.224
broadcast 184.108.40.206" I can ping the IP address from the machine
that is on the same switch (e.g. from 220.127.116.11) but I can not ping
or trace to the ip aliased interface. I have searched around on google
but can't seem to find what I am doing wrong!
