I am using "ip addr add 126.96.36.199/24 dev eth0" to add an IP address to an ethernet device in order to listen on a second address. This works fine.
The question is: how do I setup this on boot?
The options I understand are:
1) /etc/rc.local - put the ip addr add command here
2) create an ifcfg-eth0:0 alias
Neither of these seems to be exactly what I have been looking for. I would have thought that ifcfg-eth0 could have had some variable like IPADDR_SECOND or something.
Anyone know what is the best way to do this?
