Assign Public / Floating IP

In this section, you will learn how to assign a fixed public IP address to your VM. To make the VM accessible from outside, you must first assign a public IP (see Floating IP).


We recommend that you restrict access to your VM from Public. You can do this in the Security Group settings with the appropriate rules.
