I'm using an ISPwho's (amazingly) limiting bandwidth per IP (and not
At home I'm using a linuxbox as a router/firewall for the other
computers, and the ISP gives me 5 IP's
Now I'd like to make use of these IPs.
The IPs are assigned via DHCP and I only have (/want to use) one NIC.
I have done some testing with aliased ips using e.g. "ifconfig eth0:1
192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0". However I have had no success
trying to assign an IP using DHCP.
I'm getting the error "Error, eth0: dhcpcd already running on pid 8906
Is it possible to do this and how?
I'm using gentoo (2.6.18-gentoo-r3).
Thank you // Javier
