Hi,

I enabled Private Networking and IPv6 when creating a droplet. After installing Windows Server 2012 R2, I am able to connect via RDP with no problems.

But I don't see my Private Networking IP Address.

2 Ethernet Adapters are listed (Ethernet 2 - Public IP and Ethernet 3 - Details Below). How can I configure my Private Networking IP?

Ethernet adapter Ethernet 3:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::30f2:aed2:404d:ffce%15
Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address. . : 169.254.255.206
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.0.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

Thank you.

In order to test whether the machine is accessible via certain IP Addresses, I allowed ICMPv4 In on the Windows Firewall.

Then I proceeded to ping the public IP (which works well), but the private IP doesn't respond.

My other DO Droplets on Ubuntu / CentOS respond on both private/public IPs, which why I suspect that my Private IP is not configured properly.

Thank you.

Solved: for those who encountered the same problem I did, the solution was to fill in:

IP Address: (Private IP)

Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0

Leave everything else blank for Ethernet Adapter 3.

Thank you.
