Virtual interface is not accesible from outside


I have an HP-UX 11iv3 and a virtual interface defined on a physical interface.
I can not access the server from outside the network using the virtual interface. The IP of the physical interface is responding (ping telnet, etc.)
I checked the route and it is defined well inside /etc/rc.config.d/netconf

When I configured this virtual interface I rebooted the server and it worked.
Today after a reboot it doesn't work.

The server is accesible from inside the network using both phisycal an virtual interfaces, but from other networks is working only with the physical interface.

Please help me

Re: Virtual interface is not accesible from outside


Please post ifconfig for both the main interface and the virtual.

The network and gateway must be compatible and the IP address must be free in order for this to work.
