Creating Virtual NIC in Centos

Type this to the terminal
cp /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:0

Change the values to your desired IP address which is in different subnet.

It should look like this

[root@choi ~]# ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:29:FD:78:BE
inet addr:192.168.0.100 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
