On my Win7 host machine, I have two VMs which I test network/server stuff.
On one machine I created an IP alias using the following commands from http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialNetworking.html#NETWORKALIASING (edit to fit my network):
ifconfig eth0:0 192.168.10.9 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.10.255 route add -host 192.168.10.9 dev eth0
I can navigate to the address in my browser and up pops the web GUI from that machine. Excellent! I checked the router to see if the IP address was registered as a static IP or whatever to the same hostname. This where I caught a snag. The aliased address isn't on the list.
So on my other machine I manually entered a static IP to test if it was just that static IPs don't show up -- In theory they should right? To get to the Internet, you have to pass the gateway which logs clients. Well that shows up on the list.
My question is: how does the router see the aliased IP? Can I port forward to that alias? Google only shows me how to create an alias, not really how the aliasing works.
