To claify, for IPV4 there are two ways to manage addresses:
There is IPaddr, which uses the ifconfig method of aliases.
This is the default for reasons that I will not go into,
mainly because I think they are wrong.
And there is IPaddr2, which uses the ip (iproute2) method
as discussed in my previous email. Suffice to say, if you
are using Linux I strongly recommend this approach. I also
recommend using the ip command times instead of ifconfig and route.
There is also a separate script to handle IPV6, which is actually
C code, not a script. I have not played with this so I can't comment
on how it works internally.
