The gateway is set at the router of your network.

So if you are renting a dedicated server from a hosting provider , then the subnet and gateway would have been set by your provider all ready.

You can easily install the other IPs from different c-class on your server then without having to worry about the routing , as this would have been setup by your dedicated server provider allready.
You just need to ask them about the gateway IP which is usually 123.456.678.1 and the subnet is usually 255.255.255.0
