I make an alias entry with ‘add’ for en0. When I ‘apply’, the entry disappears. Ifconfig en0 shows the alias IP address and I can ping it.
This alias is not persistent after reboot. It is, when I make a manual entry in /etc/net.cfg
However, when I launch phlip once again and close without making entries or applying/saving anything, the manual entry (the line starting with ‘alias …’) in /etc/net.cfg is lost and I’m back to the non-alias configuration from the start.
route 192.168.178.11 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0
lookup file bind
alias 192.168.178.123 255.255.255.0
I have the workaround as described above, but it’s a little bit annoying. Does anyone know more where I’m wrong ?
