Setting up 3 servers on a single machine isn't quite as simple because
each server needs to be bound to an individual IP-address. So you would
have to assign multiple aliases to your network interface and such.

This is how a 'server' is bound to one of the ip-addresses. So you would
need something like the following in /etc/hosts (or DNS) scm scm2 scm3

And bind the additional aliases for you network interface as follows,

    ip addr add dev eth0
    ip addr add dev eth0

And in the server.conf have,


As the hostnames resolve to different ip-aliases, all servers will bind
to listen only for packets destined for that address. You have to start
each server as with an additional -n X flag.

    startserver -n 2 &
    startserver -n 3 &

I'm not sure whether the first server needs -n 1.
