Configuring additional IP in Windows Cloud

After logging in, check your network settings. In MSDOS prompt type the command: ipconfig / all.




Write down the data of the network interface that contains the active IP: IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS Server. In the example above would be:

Interface Name: Local Area Connection 2


  • IP Address:
  • Subnet Mask:
  • Default Gateway:
  • DNS Server:

Close the MSDOS prompt and continue the configuration with a hand additional IP data provided by the key (in the example será187.33.0.4).

Click Start >> Control Panel >> Network Connections >> Local Area Connection 2 (in this example is the active network interface). This name can be changed, so check which is the active interface on the output of the command "ipconfig / all" to prompt the "MSDOS".






Opens the window below, then click "Properties":





Select the option Internet Protocol (TCP / IP) and then click "Properties":





Complete the following box with the data that you noted in the output of the ipconfig / all and finally, click the "Advanced ..." to configure additional IP:





In the "Advanced TCP / IP Settings" click "Add ..." in the IP address field. Will open a second box (TCP / IP Address) requesting additional IP and Subnet Mask.

Fill in the IP data by copying the Subnet Mask of the main IP. In the example below is, and then click "Add":





Continue closing all the boxes in the "Ok" button. In late fall the RDP connection. Soon after to test the operation, use the additional IP to connect remote. If you can, setup is ok, then open the MSDOS prompt again and check the command output information "ipconfig / all".




As shown above show the two server IPs.

NOTE: To set more than one additional IP, suffice to replicate the process by following the same logic.
