IP Failover - Multiple Public IP

It looks like you've set it up properly, but the X's are hiding the key information. Normally, your address and broadcast should be the failover IP address, and the gateway should be the first three octets of the Failover IP followed by .254.

If this still doesn't work, I would recommend opening a support ticket.

I have a problem with my IP Failover. I want to have multiple public IP with the same traffic eth0 does not work.

The solution I'm currently using is DNAT and SNAT iptables rules to redirect to the IP eth0 but it is not effective.

My network interfaces:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto eth0:0
iface eth0:0 inet static
address 149.56.x.x
broadcast 149.56.x.x
gateway 149.56.65.x

auto eth0:1
iface eth0:1 inet static
address 192.99.x.x
broadcast 192.99.x.x
gateway 149.56.65.x
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface         149.56.12.x         UG    0      0        0 eth0
149.56.12.x UH    0      0        0 eth0

As I get to work with me all the same IP traffic?
