Cloud Servers 727 x 90
Follow These Steps to Assign Additional IP Addresses in Debian

In order to add an additional IP address to your Debian system you will have to edit /etc/network/interfaces file and add appropriate lines with network information.

First, open the network interfaces file.

nano /etc/network/interfaces

The original file will look something like this:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

You should not change any present configuration, instead add additional lines, for example:

auto eth0:1
iface eth0:1 inet static

Take note that you must add :[number] to the text eth0( for example eth0:2). The number changes depending on how many additional IP’s you have. If you have 5 additional IP’s and you want to add them the numbers will be eth0:1, eth0:2, eth0:3, etc.

Restart your network interface using command:

/etc/init.d/networking restart
