Virtual Ethernet Interface

Virtual interfaces allow a single ethernet interface to listen on additional IP addresses.

Manual way:

# ifconfig hme0:1 plumb
# ifconfig hme0:1 up

Automatic way:

  1. Make an entry in /etc/hosts for your new interface: newhost
  2. echo newhost > /etc/hostname.hme0:1
  3. Reboot.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
