So, how do I correctly configure alias IP addresses? According to the
FreeBSD handbook only the first address should have a real netmask,
and all aliases should be /32. But this seems to not work correctly
if the order of the addresses might change suddenly...
If I use addresses on the same subnet, I use the same mask. If the
aliases are from another prefix, I put them on lo0.
'correctly' very much depends on what you are trying to accomplish.
