Hi, I've just setup a new server with whm/cpanel, etc. And I have a question.
Right now I connect to it via the main ip (69.94.131.240). But My Datacenter gave me the information below for the additional ip's hooked up to it.

How do I go about adding these to the server via whm? Or do I have to ssh in and manually add them..

I saw the Add a New IP Option in WHM, but I'm confused what to put where, and what to put for subnet mask. Do I put the 192.168... assigned to each ip? Or do I put the same default or the one below the data they gave me. THANKS!!

Code:
IP on firewall   ->  ip on your server
69.94.131.240 -> 192.168.18.240
69.94.131.241 -> 192.168.18.241
69.94.131.242 -> 192.168.18.242
69.94.131.243 -> 192.168.18.243
69.94.131.244 -> 192.168.18.244
69.94.131.245 -> 192.168.18.245
69.94.131.246 -> 192.168.18.246
69.94.131.247 -> 192.168.18.247
69.94.131.248 -> 192.168.18.248
69.94.131.249 -> 192.168.18.249
69.94.131.250 -> 192.168.18.250
69.94.131.251 -> 192.168.18.251
 
subnet mask = 255.255.0.0

I'm going to go with adding the 192 series. It looks as though your IP addresses are natted 1 to 1 with the public IP on the firewall. If your box is using a 192 address (check with ifconfig via ssh), that would just confirm it.

since the public IP is on the firewall, if you try to put it on your box, it won't work.

Code:
[email protected] [~]# ifconfig
eth2      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:E0:81:40:11:00
          inet addr:192.168.18.240  Bcast:192.168.255.255  Mask:255.255.0.0
          inet6 addr: fe80::2e0:81ff:fe40:1100/64 Scope:Link
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

          RX bytes:334464 (326.6 KiB)  TX bytes:1465488 (1.3 MiB)

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host

          RX packets:2597 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:2597 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

          RX bytes:2371988 (2.2 MiB)  TX bytes:2371988 (2.2 MiB)
Is the result from ifconfig. So basically

Goto Add Ip in Whm, then what exactly should i type?

-sorry, first time I've added ip's manually myself

According to the output above, your mask is 255.255.0.0

So, you'd add 192.168.18.241 with a mask of 255.255.0.0
