Some time ago I already asked for a possibility to setup the network
with additional IPs assigned to an eth device without using aliased
devices. As the network scripts now for a long period uses iproute2 to
setup devices instead of the older ifconfig it would be easier to
address further IPs to a device than by aliasing. In addition iptables
can't handle aliased device names.
Did anyone made already efforts to develop scripts to handle this issue?
Otherwise I would start by my own to integrate shell scripts into the
Redhat/Fedora network scripts to assign additional IPs - as a list or as
just a bunch of IPs - to an existing eth device.
