To be able to make the association created between the Public IP
and Cloud Server effective you have to configure the network card with the parameters provided when the Public IP was created. These data can be recovered from the control panel in the window with the details of the Public IP:
- Select the tab "Manage" in the control panel and click the menu item "Public IP" on the left
- When the summary screen for all the public IPs opens, click on the "Details" button in the line of the IP whose configuration parameters you want to find out.
Once you have taken note of the data, access the Cloud Server via the Restore Console
then proceed as follows:
- Go to Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center then click on the menu on the left "Change adapter settings"
- A screen will open with a list of active network cards: once you have identified the network card connected to the Public IP and right clicked with the mouse over the related icon, select "Properties" from the drop-down menu (Fig.1)
- In the tab that opens, select "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and then click on the button "Properties" (Fig.2)
- In the tab "General" select the radio-button "Use the following IP address"
- Enter the Public IP address in the field "IP address"
- Enter the value of the subnet mask provided in the field "Subnet mask"
- Enter the value of the Gateway provided in the field "Default gateway" and confirm by clicking the "OK" button (fig.3)
- Enter the value 188.8.131.52 (Google’s DNS) in the "Preferred DNS Server" field, or your preferred primary DNS server (fig.3)
- Enter the value 184.108.40.206 (Google’s DNS) in the "Alternate DNS Server" field, or your preferred secondary DNS server (fig.3)
At this point the Cloud Server is correctly connected to the Internet and can be accessed from the Internet via the public IP configured.
