I have assigned an alias IP address from the same subnet as the original one to my nic. So my ifcfg-eth0 and ifcfg-eth0:1 looks as follows:
# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 NAME=eth0 GATEWAY=192.168.1.1 DEVICE=eth0 ONBOOT=yes BOOTPROTO=static NETMASK=255.255.255.0 IPADDR=192.168.1.40 # cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0\:1 DEVICE=eth0:1 ONPARENT=yes IPADDR=192.168.1.70 PREFIX=24
- What IP address would be used as source IP for (initiating) outgoing traffic by default?
- How could I control which IP should be used as source IP for outgoing traffic?
In Solaris one could mark a logical IP as deprecated. Is there a similar concept for Linux?
