Re: loopback interface

Have no experience with that but is this ok ?

$ ifconfig lo0 alias xxx
where xxx is an IP name setup in the host table.

I tried it and it seems to work (7.3, ucx 5.3 eco 2)

Re: loopback interface

In order to have this command (and ping and others), first do

$ @sys$startup:tcpip$define_commands

I need to create a second LO1 interface,making use of the LO0 will not do.

Thanks
