Add an additional IP address to your server

Step 1. Open the network configuration file (pico /etc/network/interfaces)

Check the name of your network interface. You should see a line similar to this one: “iface eth0 inet static”. In my case the name is eth0.

Add these lines to the end of the file:

auto eth0:1

iface eth0:1 inet static





Replace eth0 by your network interface name. If you are adding multiple IP addresses to the same system, you can increase the number after “eth0:”.

Stept 2. Activate the new virtual network interface

ifup eth0:1
