How to Add IP Addresses to Windows Server

Method 1: Using netsh command.

The command prompt method is fastest and we suggest it first. To add IP addresses to a Windows VPS or Windows Server, first open Command Prompt at Start > Run > cmd.

Enter the command for each new IP address to add to the system:

netsh interface ipv4 add address “Local Area Connection” 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.0 

Change “192.168.1.2” to your additional IP. The subnet mask is usually 255.255.255.0 – Please contact us for confirmation of netmask before doing this.

Method 2: Adding IP Addresses to Windows.

Navigate to Control Panel > Network & Internet > Network Connections and Change Adapter Settings

Right click “Local Area Connection” and choose Properties.

Select TCP/IPv4 and click Properties.

  • Check that your server is configured to use a specific IP address, netmask, and gateway.
  • Click Advanced… and Add to enter your additional IP addresses. In most cases, the same Subnet mask as the primary IP is used.
  • Once all the IP addresses are configured, click OK through all of the settings windows. The IP addresses are now connected to the system.
