Using ip aliases. See "man ifconfig", see the section on logical interfaces.
Solaris TCP/IP allows multiple logical interfaces to be associated
with a physical network interface. This allows a single machine to be
assigned multiple IP addresses, even though it may have only one
network interface. Physical network interfaces have names of the form
driver-name physical-unit-number, while logical interfaces have names
of the form driver-name physical-unit-number:logical-unit-number. A
physical interface is configured into the system using the plumb
command. For example:
