Hi all,

I need to (quickly!grrr) update IP addresses for which a given machine
will answer.

I did this:

/sbin/ifconfig eth0:0 xx.xx.xx.10 netmask 255.255.255.0
/sbin/ifconfig eth0:1 xx.xx.xx.11 netmask 255.255.255.0
/sbin/ifconfig eth0:2 xx.xx.xx.30 netmask 255.255.255.0
/sbin/ifconfig eth0:3 xx.xx.xx.31 netmask 255.255.255.0
/sbin/ifconfig eth0:4 xx.xx.xx.13 netmask 255.255.255.0
/sbin/ifconfig eth0:5 xx.xx.xx.15 netmask 255.255.255.0
/sbin/ifconfig eth0:6 xx.xx.xx.20 netmask 255.255.255.0
/sbin/ifconfig eth0:7 xx.xx.xx.21 netmask 255.255.255.0
/sbin/ifconfig eth0:8 xx.xx.xx.22 netmask 255.255.255.0


but on looking at the output of /sbin/ifconfig, I see this:

How can I get my NIC to accept traffic for these IPs?

Thanks In Advance,
