Multiple Loopback Interface

Hi All,

I'm trying to figure out how to add multiple loopback (lo) interface, i'm trying to:

cp /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-lo /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-lo:0

and rename the infor inside as:

DEVICE=lo:0
IPADDR=127.0.0.2
.....
......
......

After I'm rebooting my machine, and run ifconfig, int lo:0 is exists but originally I have 10 ethernet port (eth0 - eth9), after reboot only left eth0 and "loopback" interface I'm created just now. Anybody know that I've missed any step? or they way I'm using was wrong? Hope you all can help.

Cheers.

Check if the proper ifcfg scripts exist for those interfaces and that the cables are connected
Yes, I think so, but wondering the way I'm created loopback interface was it correct..!!??

Re: Multiple Loopback Interface

Hi All,

Any idea whether we can create more than 1 loopback interface in Fedora 14?

Cheers
