  1. Complete the following steps to configure your extra IP on your Linux machine

  2. Use the command below to open the following file: /etc/network/interfaces

    sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces


    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    # The primary network interface
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
            address 10.3.5.16
            netmask 255.255.255.0
            # dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
            dns-nameservers 172.16.2.200 85.255.196.200
            dns-search myinstance.net

  3. Add the new IP to the file

    auto eth0:1
    iface eth0:1 inet static
            address 10.3.5.35
            netmask 255.255.255.0

  4. Restart the network service

    /etc/init.d/networking restart
