IP aliasing is associating more than one IP address to a network interface. With this, one node on a network can have multiple connections to a network, each serving a different purpose. In the Linux kernel, it was first implemented by Juan José Ciarlante in 1995. It has also been possible in Microsoft Windows NT since (at least) Windows NT 3.51, released in 1995.
