single ip address on cobalt system

newbie question I'm sure but I could use some help:

for some reason i can only get sites to come up if they're listed on the same ip address as all others. In other words, all I've set up so far are virtual sites.

I'd like to have a couple of sites running on their own IP addresses. Is there a max to how many IP's can run on a cobalt xtr? What about that second network port... what is it even for?

Can someone give me the instructions for setting up a new site with a new ip address?

If you already know this basic point please forgive me, but you do say you are a newbie.

You must of course first 'own' the IP numbers, you cannot assign an arbitrary number on a public network. If you rent/lease your Raq from a hosting company, tell them you need some new IP numbers and ask them to assign them.

For the new ip numbers to work, the DNS must also be set up to point the sites at them. If you are doing your own DNS, this is straight forward. Just use the numbers required instead of your shared number. If not, ask whoever does your DNS to set it up.
