Is the same case Bruno?
A wifi iface and ethernet iface with many alises?
Or is more generic case?
The question is because I have many servers now with FC5 with
multi-aliases ethernet ifaces and have no problem (at least this problem).
Anyone could confirm this problem and the workaround provided by Bruno?
