Have you followed the instructions in the handbook:

If there is already an ip in that range on the interface, you need to use:
ifconfig em1 alias 195.3.245.xx/32
Next time include ifconfig -a so we know what addresses and interfaces
you have. Makes diagnostics easier.
P.S. This question is better targeted to -questions.
