How to Add A Private IP to an Ubuntu Server

Verified and Tested 01/13/2023


In this How-to, we will learn how to configure a private IP address on an Ubuntu Server.

Private networking is a great way to keep the traffic between your servers internal and not accessible publicly. It allows you to communicate between your servers without using your Cloud bandwidth as well. It is also faster than public traversal as it will not require leaving the network to reach the destination server. At this time, private networking within our Cloud will only be able to communicate with same-region servers.
