More than one IP address per NIC? (Alias)

» close window

The Question is:

Is it possible with Compaq TCP/IP Services to define more than one IP address
 for a physical interface? If yes, how?
However, I do NOT want to set a cluster IP address, I just want one single
 interface to have two addresses.
For example, in Tru64 Unix, this is possible using ifconfig ... alias a.b.c.d
 (similar also with other Unix systems)

The Answer is :

  Set the alias.  It provides what you (appear to) want.
