For Windows Cloud Servers

In this article, we'll show you how to remove a public IPv4 address from your IONOS Windows cloud server:

Prerequisites:
  • You have removed the assignment of the additional public IPv4 address in the Cloud Panel.

  • You have logged on to the server.

  • Open your server's Windows Control Panel.

  • Click Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings.

  • Right-click the network adapter.

  • Click Properties.

  • Double-click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP / IPv4).

Please Note

To keep the current main IP address, you must first enter it as a static address.

  • Enter the current main IP address in the IP Address: field.

  • Enter 255.255.255.255 in the Subnet Mask field.

  • In the Default gateway field, enter: 10.255.255.1.

  • In the Preferred DNS Server field, type: 212.227.123.16. Alternatively, you can enter the name server 212.227.123.17.

  • Click Advanced.

  • In the IP Addresses area, click Add.

  • Enter the additional IP address in the IP Address: field.

  • Enter 255.255.255.255 in the Subnet Mask field.

  • Click Add.

  • Confirm the still open dialogs with OK.

Please Note

You may receive a warning that the gateway is located in another subnet. You can safely ignore this. Simply confirm with YES that the configuration should be saved.

The changes have now been accepted. This may result in a temporary interruption of the remote desktop connection.

Please Note

If the server cannot be reached using the main IP address or the additional public IP address after these changes, you can log on to the server using the KVM console.
