multiple ip addresses

I've added some ip address such as

added to the /etc/hosts file

10.1.3.10     server1
10.1.3.11     server2
10.1.3.12     server3
10.1.3.13     server4
10.1.3.14     server5
10.1.3.15     server6

I plumed the interface and brought them up.

How do I set these so they come back up when reboot since these use a different netmask and broadcast than my regular IP address

I can add hostname files such as

/etc/hostname.hme0


question I have is how will it know the netmask and broadcast I need to use with these such as

255.255.255.0   and  10.1.3.255

is there a way to add this to the netmask file?

Thanks,

Just setup a /etc/hostname.hme0:1 as:
10.1.3.10

Setup /etc/hostname.hme0:2 as:
10.1.3.11

and so on.

Generally you setup the netmask in /etc/netmasks:

10.1.3.0 255.255.255.0
