usually I'd say ip aliasing is no problem. We use it on several servers
without any problems.
But I have a prob with one server in DMZ which I investigated for hours and
don't found any reason for it's behaviour.
The machine's IP is x.x.x.251 and has some aliases: eth0:0 = .1
(, eth0:1 (, eth0:2 ( I can
ping each ip (from same subnet or other nets) except the .1 address, neither
by name nor by ip. Doing a tcpdump on this interface shows no icmp packets
for this ip, for others there are packets as expected. It doesn't matter
whether I have a specifiy host route for each alias or not. And it's not
firewall/nat related because it doesn't work with both shut down, too. Ping
this ip or name from the server itself works of course.
I don't have any idea why this isn't working. Does anybody have one?
