    Is it possible to make accounts that resellers setup share the reseller\'s IP?

    eg., if you give the reseller a dedicated IP address with their account, can all accounts created by that reseller use the same IP as the reseller\'s?

    Regards

    hi there,

    dont know much about it, but i dont think u can do that,
    cause the IP needs to point somewhere and cant point to different places at the same time.
    ...might work with subdomains though, but thats not the question...

    so long,

    Duncan McLord

    Now that would be great if it could be done :)

    Changing the IP in WHM \"setup\" and adding a few directives (BindAddress and NameVirtualHost) to apache usually does the trick of changing the IP address for the account setup.

    The advantage of being able to setup each reseller account\'s on a separate IP would be the ability to monitor the TOTAL bandwidth generated by all the resoldl account (for reseller accounts sold with bandwidth limit for example)...

    That should not be hard to implement but it would require the attention of Nick...

    I suggest that someone places a feature request for this... (I don\'t seem to be able to login to that site to place the request myself :( )

    Looking forward for an update :D
