Multiple VIPA addresses
Multiple virtual interfaces can be configured. Multiple VIPA interfaces would be useful, for example, if network routers could give preferential treatment to packets sent to or from certain VIPA addresses.
Or, you might use multiple VIPA interfaces if they were binding applications to a specific VIPA interface. For example, to run multiple web servers for multiple companies on a single machine, you could configure the following:
- vi0 18.104.22.168 www.companyA.com
- vi1 22.214.171.124 www.companyB.com
- vi2 126.96.36.199 www.companyC.com
