Re: [K12OSN] Virtual IP Addresses

Let me make sure I understand you. You want the clients on the inside
of the network to also have unique addresses on the outside adapter of
the server. Is this correct? If so, then ifconfig would look like:
eth0  ...

etho:ws001 ...

etho:ws002 ...

etho:ws003 ...

etho:ws004 ...

Getting each user login to bind to a different outside adapter might
be possible, but it would be easily broken, I'd guess, when something
on the inside or outside network changed. Just my 2 cents.

What would it take to assign virutral IP addresses to the clients so that
each one would present to the network as a separate michine instead of
everyone coming from one address?  There are some significant advantages to
this in monitoring and controlling a network.
