Using public IP addresses

A public IP address to a VM exposes all network ports on the VM, allowing direct inbound and outbound access from the public Internet. There are two public IP address options:

  • A static IPv4 public IP address (example: 199.199.199.199)
  • A dynamic IPv4 public IP address paired with a Skytap-managed DNS name (example: app1.sampleorg.skytapdns.com).
