Hello all,

I have a server on DMZ with external static ip assigned and /etc/network/interfaces is as below :

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address x.x.x.179
network x.x.x.176
broadcast x.x.x.191
gateway x.x.x.177

What i want to do is to add an internal LAN static ip ( to same interface so that clients on LAN can connect to server on DMZ using MySQL ODBC connector to, not x.x.x179 <-- this is the eth0.

So what i would do is start by adding eth0:0,
auto eth0:0
iface eth0:0 inet static

Few things I am not sure about. Can i add multiple ip to one interface with different subnet & gateway? In this case, I am trying to use one external static ip & one internal LAN static ip to same network interface.

Any opinions on multiple ips on same network interface would be great. In this case, i want to add one global static ip (x.x.x.179) & one internal ip (

Thank you.
