You can create a public IP for any failover VM within a virtual office to make it accessible over the internet.
- You can specify the rules for controlling inbound access, as well as the ports that should be open for TCP and UDP traffic.
- You can define up to 10 individual ports, or port ranges, per protocol. Outbound traffic is allowed on all ports.
Note: While you cannot pre-configure multiple public IPs within Runbook settings, you can edit the configuration of virtual offices that have started within a Runbook.
Note: You can configure Public IP addresses only for VMs belonging to subnets with Outbound Access enabled.
To configure multiple public IPs:
On the Configure: Virtual Office page, click the Edit button in the Public IPs section.
Click the Enabled slider to enable public IPs. You can also disable this feature if you need to temporarily restrict access to the failover VMs. You can re-enable and restore your public IP configuration settings at any time.
On the Public IPs screen, click the Add Another link to add additional entries, and update the following fields for each line item:
In the Device drop-down field, select the appropriate protected device. You can only add devices with running or stopped failover statuses.
- The Public IP field will display the public IP address, which is automatically assigned for the device.
- In the Inbound TCP Port Ranges field, enter inbound TCP ports, if applicable. Use dashes to define a range and use commas to list individual entries (for example, 80-84, 443).
- In the Inbound UDP Port Ranges field, enter inbound UDP ports, if applicable. Use dashes to define a range and use commas to list individual entries.
- Optionally, click the Delete icon to delete a public IP address. When a public IP is deleted, it is not possible to re-assign the same public IP to that VM.
- Optionally, click the Edit icon to modify a public IP address setting (inbound TCP and UDP port ranges only).
- Click the Save button to save any new configurations.
Note: By default, you can only create public IPs for up to five VMs. Please contact Axcient support to increase this limit.
