Once a network has been added you need to add IP addresses to that network. The system supports dual-stack protocol implementation (both IPv4 and IPv6).
To add IPv4 or IPv6 addresses:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Settings menu.
  2. Click the Networks icon: the screen that appears shows every network available in your cloud.
  3. Click the name (label) of the network you want to add addresses to. On the screen that follows you'll see a list of all IP addresses currently assigned to this network.
  4. Click the Add New IP Address button at the bottom of the screen, and complete the form that appears:

    • IP Address– you can create either single IP address or a range of IP addresses.
      • Single IP address example: '192.168.1.5' (IPv4); '2001:db8:0:0:8:800:200C:417A' (IPv6).
      • Range example: '192.168.0.2-254' or '192.168.0.2-192.168.0.254' (IPv4); '2001:db8:8:800:200C:417A-427A' (IPv6).
    • Netmask – netmask example: '255.255.255.0' (IPv4) or '24' (IPv6).
    • Gateway – enter a single IP to specify a gateway. If you leave this blank the address will be added without a gateway in case the IP addresses specified above are private. For public IP address this parameter cannot be left blank.
    • Don't use as primary during VS build – if you tick this box, the IP addresses you add will never be assigned as primary IPs. Primary IPs are only allocated to VSs when the VS is built, so with this box ticked, the address range will never be assigned to a newly built VS.

  5. Click the Add New IP Address button to finish.

Since not every application supports IPv6, at least one IPv4 address must be allocated to a VS's primary network interface. 

The number of IP addresses you can add at one time is defined on the Settings > Configuration screen, under the Interface tab. To add more IP addresses than the maximum number configured, just repeat the procedure again.
