Windows Virtual Server – add IP to your Network Interface

For this guide, we will use subnet as an example that is assigned to a Cloud Server.

To add IP to the network interface, you have to connect to the server, connection details can be found in Terminal > Cloud Hosting > Cloud Servers, and choose the server.

This will be needed in this tutorial later on. Information of network server can be found in your Terminal > Cloud server > Network.

To connect to the server, we will use RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol). RDP can be found on your computer.

In the Computer field enter your server’s External IP (it can be found in your server terminal network tab) and continue by pressing Connect button.
The next window should pop up with the request to enter the user name and password.

The user name for RDP by default is Administrator.
For the password use your Servers Password.
When you do this, you should reach your server through RDP.

Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Change adapter settings.

Open the Properties of your network interface.

Now choose Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) in the list and continue by pressing Properties.

If your window is empty in „Use the following IP address“ are then write down server Network information by hand.

Select the Advanced button and in the next window, click Add in the IP Addresses section. Add the IP you want to your network interface by inputting the IP address and IP Mask and continue with the button Add.

To save the changes you have to click OK a few times and the Close button.

Open CMD (Command Prompt) as Administrator. In the CMD type:


To make sure that the IP address has appeared on the network interface.


After this do not forget to stop and then start the Cloud Server after assigning the additional IPs to the server.

Let’s check if this added IP is pinging.

Great, the IP is now configured on the network interface.

NOTE: If you require IP to be responding to ping requests, please make this modification on the firewall:

Search for Windows Defender Firewall

Select Advanced Settings

On the left pane click Inbound Rules

Now search for File and Printer Sharing (Echo Request – ICMPv4-In)

Right-click with computer mouse on each rule and select Enable Rule.
