how can I get a global internet IPv4 address on the interface of my droplet?
Global? They are public facing as is, they only allow one ip per droplet. If your looking to add other C-classes you have to have other droplets in different locations.
to clarify: when I run ifconfig eth0, the interface shows a 169.254.x.x IP address, which is different from the global IP address that is allocated to my droplet in the control panel.
I would like the ifconfig interface address to match the global IP address in the control panel. Is this possible?
As far as I know, the inet addr for eth0 should match the ip address displayed in your control panel, contact support if it doesn't, sounds like a bug.
