Adding additional IPv4 to Ubuntu

To know the gateway and netmask of your IP address, please see this guide http://wiki.crowncloud.net/?viewing_network_gateway_netmask

First, find the main/primary interface name with,

ip a   (or)   ifconfig -a

If the above command shows you something like ens3, then replace eth0 below with ens3.

Edit the interfaces file,

nano /etc/network/interfaces

Add the following into it,

auto eth0:0
iface eth0:0 inet static
address IP_ADDR
netmask NETMASK

Details for IP_ADDR and NETMASK can be found from the VPS control panel located at, https://crownpanel.com

Once the interfaces file is updated,

ifup eth0:0

Should activate up the interface.

Similarly to add more IPs, say another addon IP,

Edit the interfaces file,

nano /etc/network/interfaces

Add the following into it, (Note the eth0:1 this time)

auto eth0:1
iface eth0:1 inet static
address IP_ADDR
netmask NETMASK

Details for IP_ADDR and NETMASK can be found from the VPS control panel located at, https://crownpanel.com

Once the interfaces file is updated,

ifup eth0:1

Done!

Similarly you can add more IPs, just change eth0:1 to eth0:2, eth0:3.. etc
