    How do I add a second IP address to a Ubuntu 16.04 machine?

    So far, I did the following:

    1. Opened /etc/network/interfaces/
    2. Added the following lines
    iface eth0 inet static
    address X.X.X.X

    when I ping the new IP from the same computer, it responds to ping, but when I ping it from a different PC it says DESTINATION HOST UNREACHABLE

    Any idea ?
  2. same network controler
    iface eth0:1 inet static
    address X.X.X.X

    diffrent network controller
    iface eth1 inet static
    address X.X.X.X

    you have to start/restart the second network interface

    are you sure that the network interface is eth0 and not something like ens33 or so? What is the name of the interface of the first IP that you have already?
