How to set additional IPs in Windows?

By default, Rackbank only binds your first IP. This is because there are different methods of applying your additional IPs that may require that they not be bound originally.


Here is the way of binding your additional IPs:

  • Login to Remote Desktop
  • Go to Control Panel-> Network Connections -> Local Area Connection (make sure that the IP on this connection is not 10.*. If it is, use the other Local Area Connection)
  • Right-click and go to Properties
  • Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
  • Click Properties
  • Click Advanced
  • Click Add and add the new IPs with the correct Subnet Mask


If you are adding multiple IP addresses, you can also use the following in the command prompt.

FOR /L %I IN (x,1,y) DO netsh interface ip add address "Local Area Connection 2"
  • x = The starting octet. This should be the one after your primary. (0.0.0.x)
  • y = The ending octet. Your last available IP.

You will need to change “” and “” to match your IPs and subnet.
