I have the below shell script

FILE=$1;
i=5

for ip in 'cat $FILE'
do
 i='expr $i + 1'
 /sbin/ifconfig eth0:$i $ip netmask 255.255.255.0
 /sbin/route add $ip eth0:$i
done

This should go through a fileand bind each line (IP) to the eth0. However its not working. I believe the script is fine but how should I call it from the terminal?

I think you probably meant
for ip in `cat $FILE`
do
 i=`expr $i + 1`

` instead of '
