Ethernet multinetting

Each physical interface can have multiple IP addresses assigned to it. If you want to have multiple networks on the same physical interface (called multinetting) but do not want to use 802.1Q VLANs, simply create multiple address configuration nodes directly under the primary interface.

To configure Ethernet multinetting, perform the following steps in configuration mode.

Table 1. Configuring Ethernet multinetting
Step Command
Assign the first IP address to the dp0p1p1 interface.
vyatta@R2# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 address 172.16.0.65/24 
Assign the second IP address to the dp0p1p1 interface.
vyatta@R1# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 address 192.168.1.17/24
Commit and view the configuration.
