Re: [Q] how to set virtual IP on AS 4



Do any of you guys use the iproute2 package to add IP aliases?

  ip addr add xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx dev ethX

I'm trying to dig up some documentation that details the difference between using ifconfig and ip without success. Any insight from the community?

Thanks,
Josh Miller, RHCE

I think he meant Webmin won't allow it. I cannot confirm nor deny that, but most of us have all used :0 plenty and know it's safe to use.

Yup - it was Webmin that wouldn't allow it.

True, but I learned many years ago that Webmin wasn't safe to use. Perhaps that's changed in the last few years, but I still steer clear of it. =)

Why "not safe to use"?
