RE: Multiple virtual interfaces in one VLAN

I've had great success with the following in /etc/network/interfaces:

iface eth0.400:0 inet static

iface eth0.400:1 inet static

iface eth0.400:2 inet static

And so on. Using to manage wireless CPEs in different subnets on the
same VLAN.

Are you trying to make all of your aliases use DHCP or statics? I would
expect multiple "use DHCP" entries on the same NIC would take you
nowhere - if work at all.

Subject: Multiple virtual interfaces in one VLAN


i have a machine with only one physical network interface. 

i know that it is possible to create virtual interfaces (eth0:1, etc.)
to have multiple ip-adresses on one physical interface. 

now i would need to configure vlans on this machine - no problem so far,
this is my config: 

auto eth1.1001
iface eth1.1001 inet dhcp 

auto eth1.1012
iface eth1.1012 inet dhcp

that works too, i get the interfaces vlan1012 and vlan1001 and ip
adresses in the corresponding subnets. 

but i cant create virtual interfaces for those vlan interfaces - the
problem is i would need about 10 interfaces in one vlan. 

i have tried both eth1.1001:1 and eth1:1.1001 syntax - both dont work. 

does anyone know how to do this?

lg, Michi
