Question

Multiple private addresses?

I want to test something that requires multiple virtual network interfaces up on the same server, each utilizing their own IP address. I understand that public IPv4 addresses are limited, but could I enable private networking and assign two private addresses to my droplet statically?

Accepted Answer

Currently we only support a single private IP address per droplet. If it will work for your purposes, you could enable ipv6 which would give you a block of 16 ipv6 addresses you can use.
