The "lo" interface already accepts packets with any 127.x.y.z
address. Do you really need more addresses than the 127.0.0.0/8
$ ping -c1 127.111.222.123
PING 127.111.222.123 (127.111.222.123) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 127.111.222.123: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.104 ms
I did absolutely nothing special to set that up. I also routinely
have an stunnel process listening on 127.0.0.25:465, and again, I
did nothing special with the interface configuration or routing
tables to allow that to work.
Bob Nichols "NOSPAM" is really part of my email address.
Do NOT delete it.
