Hme0 interfaces...

How do you configure more than one network on a single hme0 interface under SunOS? And why would you want to do this?

Thanx Smilie

under /etc you should create file "hostname.hme0:1" besides your hostname.hme0 that you have. and insdie this file insert your machinename-01

then with "ifconfig" cmd ,assign the new IP Address to this pesudo interface. as you see these procedures are for having two different ranges of IP Address at the same time.
