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:
