Do I have to worry about different IP addresses on the same server?

It probably has something to do with NAT (Network Address Translation). The router takes care of the IP addresses on a LAN (Local Area Network). It deciphers or translates to the correct IP address it was originally assigned to through the external network which in most cases is the Internet.

You can do that. All you need to do is set up additional IP addresses in the network configuration file. If you're a Windows user then it's on the NIC and for Unix it's /etc/rc.conf as aliases.
