IP Aliasing and kernel 2.2.16 vs 2.2.19
Posted on 2001-06-12
I'm building a Slackware server for Web hosting that will need to use IP based hosting for SSL. The kernel I currently have is 2.2.16 and I have been told that 2.2.16 does not support IP Aliasing so I cannot assign multiple IP addresses to the same NIC. I have also been told that I should upgrade to 2.2.19.
Is there a workaround on 2.2.16 that will allow me to use multiple addresses on the same NIC or do I have to go to the 2.2.19 kernel?
For that matter, does the 2.2.19 kernel support IP aliasing?
