Interface Aliases: a great concept

Recently i came across a scenario where we have a huge LAN of windows machines and we wanted to have some of them become unable to locate/browser/view other machine on network. There were a lot of solutions possible but i went with the interface aliases, created a new eth0:0, assigned static IP, assigned windows IP, used the IP of alias interface as proxy to browsers (as squid does run on the reserved, which in my case is a given most of the time.) and voila, everything works as required.
