Multiple IP alias to be used with Nginx

Hey guys,

had a question for anyone that is utilizing massive amount of ip alise
on *nix* to allow proper ip listening for nginx. I currently have
1x/24 and 1x/23 network that i need nginx to listen for... I also run
independent config files for each unique ip address on the box which
listens for an active ip address/adapter on the server. Ive had to
turn to using ip alise for this function to work properly but its
really a crappy way of doing this (having over 700 ip alise is not
something an admin would want to have) so is there a way to force
nginx to listen to an ip addresses/request that are not active on the
box? I am utilizing a Load balancer in an DSR mode...

Thanks in advance
