Not sure if this is the right forum, I apologize if it isn't.
I have a hosted VPS with many sites on a shared ip address.
I added two new ip addresses and associated each with a single site (all done via WHM CPanel), so now two sites have unique ip addresses. DNS propagated and when I ping either site I correctly get (each of) the site's new,
unique ip address.
However, outgoing connections from each of the two unique-ip sites still use the old, shared ip address: when I run a wget script from the site's ssh shell to query WhatIsMyIp.com (or run a web page with a php script that does the same thing), WhatisMyIp.com reports that the call is coming from the old shared ip address, not from the
new associated unique address.
Is it even possible to associate an outgoing connection with a unique ip address in this manner?
(My Linux knowledge is rudimentary. If more VPS hardware or software details are required to answer this I can email tech-support to obtain the info--they were unable to answer this outgoing-connection-ip-address question).
In any case, I appreciate any help.
