yes, as you've found out already, the normal recommended configuration is Bridge Networking:

Failover IPs and additional IPs are basically the same: extra public IPs.

You can order the IPs you need at any time. Just place the order from the manager. Depending on the model, you'll need to pay only a setup fee or you may need to pay the setup + a monthly fee.

Let us know if you need anything else.

After some further digging...

I have created a Virtual MAC in the SYS control panel. Assigned this in VirtualBox and on the CentOS network configuration.

It is now reachable by the new IP!

Now just to wait for the additional 'free' IP's I require.

May receive a quicker response here though, shall see what happens!

Hi all,

I have Windows Server 2012 R2 on my SYS box. Within this I have setup a Virtual Machine (CentOS) which will operate cPanel.

In order to get setup, I want to order 4 additional IP's. (1 for the main OS and 4 for the virtual machine).

Firstly, can failover IP's be used in this way and if not can I purchase additional IP's?

Secondly, would anyone advise how best to set up the virtual machine networking - NAT and forwarding, bridged or I use a bridged connection or a virtual only set up?

Cheers,
John
