[Help] Setting up new IPs

I've been trying to setup an IP to my dedicated server. I have access to 13 IPs, only 1 is set up, and I tried using this tutorial: http://morecode.wordpress.com/2008/11/04/adding-an-ip-address-to-debianubuntu-linux/

I literally copied and pasted and only replaced the XX's, is there anything else I have to change? I can't connect to the new IP through SSH yet so I guess I'm not doing it right

    The netmask should be same as first ip. You change that?

    auto lo eth0
    iface lo inet loopback
    
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
    address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    netmask xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    gateway xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    
    auto eth0:1
    iface eth0:1 inet static
    address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    netmask xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    
    auto eth0:n
    iface eth0:n inet static
    address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    netmask xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

    The netmask shouldn't be the same as his first IP. If he has his own VLAN, then with 13 usable IPs I'm guessing he has a /28 in which case his netmask would be 255.255.255.240. If he's not on his own VLAN, then the host will need to provide the netmask.

    What do you mean by my own VLAN? Thanks!

    It's a dedi from CVPS that was /28
