I'm looking for some ideas here... i have an IPCop machine with a
primary IP of xxx.xxx.xxx.005 and aliases of xxx.xxx.xxx.002-010 on
the red interface.

Make absolutely certain you are not sticking those leading zeros in the
addresses. xxx.xxx.xxx.005 might equal xxx.xxx.xxx.5 but xxx.xxx.xxx.008
and xxx.xxx.xxx.009 are invalid numbers - the leading zero means you are
writing in OCTAL (base 8) and not decimal.
