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.
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.
