multiple ip addresses on one vlan (cisco 1801)

I have a need to assign 2 ip addresses to VLAN1 on a cisco 1801.  Is this possible?

I need to createn a MS VM which will have one NIC with IP addresses is separate subnets.
VM addresses: /24    & /24

I need to configure VLAN1 on the 1801 with the following addresses: /24    & /24

I can't do this using multiple VLANs because even if the VM supports tagging, it only has one NIC.

Cheers, Andy

Well, you could do multiple vlans. You would create change the port connecting to the VM nic to a trunk instead of access port. Anyway you can just add a secondary address to interface VLAN1

interface vlan 1
ip address
ip address secondary

That's the command I was looking for!  'secondary'   Fantastic!

I did try changing the port to a trunk but I need the host to support VLAN tagging for that to work.  And even though the VM does support tagging, it can only tag 1 VLAN at a time, and as I'm trying to belong to 2 vlans at the same time (multiple IPs on one NIC) this wouldn't work.

Thank you...much appreciated :)
