IP address allocation

The GMO Cloud Hosting console allows assignment of a global IP address  to a virtual machine. You can add an IP address to a virtual machine by performing an assignment. This option is a charged service.

In this guide, we will describe how to

  • Set up the network interface that has already been configured

Please show me used IP pool IP addresses that are currently being used by other virtual servers will be displayed. An IP address will not be able to operate on multiple virtual servers at once. If you use, you must stop the virtual server using it.
