If your workspace is upgraded from an earlier version of a directory whose ID is in the format of <region ID> + dir + <17 letters and digits>, you can enable Internet access for your cloud desktop by configuring an elastic IP address (EIP) or a NAT gateway. This topic describes how to configure an EIP.
Step 1: Create an EIP
If you already have an EIP, skip this step and associate your EIP with the cloud desktop. If you do not have an EIP, create one.
- Log on to the VPC console.
- In the top navigation bar, select a region.
- In the left-side navigation pane, choose .
- On the Elastic IP Addresses page, click Create EIP.
- Configure the parameters for the EIP. Set the Region and Zone parameter to where the cloud desktop resides. For more information, see Apply for new EIPs.
- Confirm the configurations and fees and click Buy Now.
Step 2: Associate the EIP with the cloud desktop
After you associate the EIP with the cloud desktop, the cloud desktop is able to access the Internet.
- On the Elastic IP Addresses page of the VPC console, find the EIP that you want to associate and click Bind Resource.
- In the Bind Elastic IP Address to Resources dialog box, complete the configurations.
Configure the following parameters:
- Instance Type: Select Secondary ENI.
- Binding mode: Select Normal.
- Select an instance to bind: Select Primary Private IP Address from the drop-down list, enter the private IP address of the cloud desktop to search
for the elastic network interface (ENI) of the cloud desktop, and then select the
ENI in the list.
Note You can check the private IP address of the cloud desktop on the Cloud Desktops page in the Elastic Desktop Service (EDS) console.
- Click OK.
