To add an additional IP address to a Windows Server, you need to first log in as administrator using Remote Desktop.
- Once you have logged in, go to Start > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center.
- Click on "Local Area Connection" in the Network and Sharing Center. This will open the "Local Area Connection Status" dialog box.
- Click on Properties to open the properties dialog, then click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).
- Once you have clicked on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), click on the Properties button. This will open the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Properties dialog, which shows you your primary IP address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway.
- To add a new IP address, click on the Advanced button, which takes you to the Advanced TCP/IP Settings screen, then click on Add in the IP addresses section.
- Enter in your new IP address and the same Subnet mask shown in the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Properties dialog.
