Webmin Bulk Add Ip Addresses

Problem

you want to add multiple ips ( aliases ) to a network interface using webmin's Net module. Adding them one by one is a slow process.

Solution

Modify webmin's Net module to allow you to copy/paste ip addresses in a textbox ( one per line ) and then click once and wait for it to do it's job.

Here's the patch for webmin 1.410, I know it's an old version but it should be easy to adapt for newer versions, let me know if you need any help.

Install

Download:  webmin bulk add net aliases-1.410 (5.26 KB)

Apply patch:

  1. cd webmin/net #or wherever webmin is
  2. patch -p1 < webmin-net-bulk-aliases.patch

Usage

Log into webmin as root/admin , go to network configuration, click on  an interface in the interfaces section, click the "Add virtual interface" link and now you should see a text box where you can just insert each ip on a new line. then just click the "Create" button
