I'd like to add some more IPs to my single ESXi server that I have through a hosting provider. When the server was set it up, I was given a /29 and was left with five IPs to use. But, there's something baffling me on how I would add more IPs.
My server only has one NIC, and from what I understand, one NIC can only be assigned one gateway at a time (the new IPs would have a different gateway). I asked my data center on how this would work, and they simply responded that the new IPs would be on the same private VLAN that I am on right now and I could set it up in the OS config. But, how does having the new IPs in the same VLAN make a difference? I set up pfSense (which is a virtual machine and all the VMs route through it using NAT 1:1) to have the gateway on my first range of IPs. So wouldn't pfSesne need a whole new interface/WAN to even add these IPs?
I'm obviously missing something but I have no idea what it is...
pfSense config for the static WAN interface (the IP is a public IP, so I blanked it out):
It'll probably help to mention that then to assign signle IPs off to my VMs, all I do is add in the IP as an alias, and it works. But I see that it allows me to add an IP in a completely different subnet, so maybe all I need to do is just add in the new IPs here and not even touch anything else as it's all on the same VLAN?
