I searched the forum and found 2 threads, none of which has a satisfactory as to how to add multiple loopback interface from startup:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...tiple+loopback

For example, if I have in my /etc/network/interface:

Code:
auto lo lo:1
iface lo inet loopback

iface lo:1 inet static
address 1.1.1.1
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 1.1.1.0
I would still need to go to the command line and execute
Code:
ifup lo:1
I supposed I can use another start-up script to run "ifup lo:1" but couldn't I put all the needed commands in /etc/network/interface?
