Change IP address
First of all I’ve added a floating IP to my droplet.
This is my problem;
In one application I need to call an API. This API needs to know which IP address it can expect to be called from so I need to type my IP address in some window related to the API (register my ip addresses at the developer of the API). I have typed in both of my IP addresses: original anchor IP and new Floating IP
The problem is that the API does not recognize the floating IP - that is, if I delete the original anchor IP in the API window/register list then API does not work.
Can I somehow make the API see/accept my floating IP? Can I define this in some configuration file on the droplet?
This is my /etc/network/interfaces
The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
The primary network interface
auto eth0 eth1
iface eth0 inet static
up ip addr add 10.19.0.5/16 dev eth0
dns-nameservers 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206
iface eth1 inet static
