i bought 4 ip addresses on OVH.
Then they gave me this details:
18.104.22.168/30 Network IP: 22.214.171.124 Broadcast IP: 126.96.36.199 Gateway IP: 188.8.131.52 Netmask: 255.255.255.252
And they assigned me mac addresses.
IP and Mask Details: IP 1: 184.108.40.206 MAC: 00:50:56:56:56:aa IP 2: 220.127.116.11 MAC: 00:50:56:56:56:bb IP 3: 18.104.22.168 MAC: 00:50:56:56:56:cc IP 4: 22.214.171.124 Mac: 00:50:56:56:56:dd
But the problem is if i add the gateway on each ip address then nothing works anymore if i assigned the gateway ip
I’m using CentOS.
Thanks for each idea in Advance 🙂
Don’t set them up this way unless you have routed the block of IP addresses to a vRack. And, with such a small block, you should not attempt to route it to a vRack or you’ll only have one usable IP address.
If you route the block directly to your dedicated server, you may use each address individually with a /32 prefix and your existing default gateway.
IPADDR=198.51.100.107 PREFIX=24 GATEWAY=198.51.100.254
is your server’s main IP address, while
IPADDR2=203.0.113.176 PREFIX2=32 IPADDR3=203.0.113.177 PREFIX3=32 IPADDR4=203.0.113.178 PREFIX4=32 IPADDR5=203.0.113.179 PREFIX5=32
are the secondaries.
If you want to assign them to bridged virtual machines, then you don’t set up the secondary IP addresses in the host. You’ll need to set virtual MAC addresses in the OVH control panel, then create VMs with those MAC addresses and the host’s gateway, like:
IPADDR=203.0.113.176 PREFIX=32 GATEWAY=198.51.100.254
