The CloudCo Partner platform includes support for External Networks for internet connectivity. Public IP addresses can be easily allocated to your account, and attached to any required Instance.
For unmetered private network traffic, refer to External Networking for allocating External Networks and External IP Addresses.
Viewing External IP Addresses
Under Networking, the External IP Addresses screen allows for creating, modifying, deleting and viewing External IP Addresses. Detail columns include:
|Name||user friendly name to identify the External Network IP addresses|
|Region||where instances using the network are physically located (for example, AU East 1 (SY3))|
|Address||the External Network IP address|
|Network||the External Network the IP address is assigned to|
|State||either ● Assigned, ● Unassigned , ● Provisioning or ● Terminated|
|Actions||the ⚙ Actions menu button which allows for renaming, deleting and viewing information on External IP Addresses|
Allocating External Network IP Addresses
External Network IP addresses can be allocated with the Allocate External IP address button in the navigation bar above the External IP address list.
The Allocate External IP address popup includes:
|Region||where instances using the network will be physically located (for example, AU East 1 (SY3))|
|Network||the External Network the IP address will be assigned to|
|Name||user friendly name to identify the External Network IP address (optional)|
|Address||the External Network IP address (optional).|
If an Address isn't specified, the next logical address in the External Network address space will be allocated.
Adding External Network IP Addresses to Instances
Once an External Network and External Network IP Address have been created, they can be assigned to an Instance for it to participate in that External Network. The Instance does not need to be shut down for this.
External Network IP Addresses can be added:
When an Instance is being created with the Advanced Create popup. These settings are under the Networks section
When an Instance is created, by clicking the ⚙ Actions button next to the Instance in the Instances screen under Compute, and selecting Networking.
To add the External Network IP Address to a new network interface:
- Click "Add network..."
- Choose the External Network you wish to add the IP address from
- Click "Add IP address..." under the interface with the External Network attached
- Choose the External Network IP address
Changing or Removing External IP Addresses on Instances
To remove External IP Addresses, click the Remove link beside the target IP address or interface, as per the Adding External Network IP Addresess to Instances section above.
