I have one physical NIC that is assigned an IP address ( Inside of GNS3 network simulation tool, I also have a another 'virtual' interface with another ip address ( Both of these addresses are in the subnet with default gateway

My issue is that within my system the addresses seem isolated so I can't directly talk to from and vice versa.

However, from outside of my physical host, other devices on the subnet can talk to both and For example, port 80 is open on both and I can access the different webpages from my phone.

Is there a way that I can access from inside my virtual network? Also, is there a way that I can access my virtual ip from my host?

If it helps, my distro is Arch Linux
