Configure a static IP address

Microsoft Azure instances are launched with a dynamic IP address by default, which means that the IP address changes every time the server is stopped and restarted. To avoid this, you can configure a static IP address for your server. Follow these instructions:

  • Log in to the Microsoft Azure Management Portal if you are not already logged in.

  • Navigate to the “Resource Group Overview” page of your original server and click on the public IP address resource link.

  • From the left-side menu, select “Settings -> Configuration”. In the “Assignment” section, activate the “Static” option. Click “Save” to make the changes take effect.

    Assign a static IP to your server
