Good day to all.
I am getting a strange error message when trying to use ALIASes for my bsd box and am hoping someone (with better eyes or brains) can assist.
Specifically the message is:
stuff here... then -> "translation adress expands to multiple IPs of this address family (more...)"
1) Running OpenBSD 3.2.
2) /etc/hostname.ne3 file looks like so:
inet y.y.y.y.250 255.255.252.0 NONE
#inet alias z.z.z.251 255.255.255.255 z.z.z.255
# six more addresses - I currently have them commented out to eliminate the error message,
# nat section: packets going out through ne3 with source address "internal network"/24 get
# translated as coming from x.x.x.x.
nat on ne3 inet from x.x.x.0/24 to any -> ne3
The bizarre part (at least for me at this point) is that I've done this with 2.7, 2.9 and 3.0 - no harm, no fowl.
If I comment out the ALIASes, all works as expected.
I would greatly appreciate any assistance that I can get.
