Shouldn't I be able to ping all my IPs?

Hmmm... Shouldn't I be able to ping all my IPs setup in CP?

My main IP is x.x.x.59

I have the following IPs also added:

x.x.x.55
x.x.x.56
x.x.x.57
x.x.x.58

When I configured the nameserver, it set the secondary ns2 as the x.x.x.55... so my nameservers are x.x.x.59 & x.x.x.55... not consecutive, but still weird.

I have tried pinging all of those IP and the only one that responds is x.x.x.59...

I thought if I set up those IPs for the server then the server would automatically begin taking input from them... am I mistaken in my assumption?

And yes... those IPs are within my IP alotment from the bandwidth provider.

Very positive... our block of IPs starts at 42 and goes though 80-something...

I AM the datacenter... It's my own server on a fiber line in my hometown...

What is netmast and how to I add it? :) I'm trying really hard to learn here. I have 3 linux books and am reading like a rabbit... I just can't figure this particular problem out.

It depends how you have it setup. How does the connection come to the server? From a router / switch? how do you have it setup.

I dont know anything about router / switch setup as that is what the datacenter manage.

xWho, I believe Hoster2k meant "netmask" ex. (255.255.255.0)

As for linux, might wanna check out webmin. Do search on google.
