This article describes how to add and remove public IPv4 Address blocks on a Network (MCP 1.0) or Network Domain (MCP 2.0)

Prerequisites:

  1. Only the Primary Administrator or a Sub-Admin with the Network role can manage Public IPv4 Address blocks
  2. If you are looking for the "How to Notify CloudControl of a Change to the IP Addresses of a NIC" see: How to Notify CloudControl of a Change to the IP Addresses of a NIC in a MCP 2.0 Data Center
  3. You are allowed to deploy IPv4 addresses onto a Network or Network Domain only up to a maximum ratio of three public IP Addresses per deployed Cloud Server. See 
  4. The system will not assign a new Public IP block which overlaps with an address that is already used as a non-RFC 1918 address on any other resource (VLANs, Nodes, Virtual Listeners, NATs (external or internal)).
