    Network Adapters - Add Published Service

    Published services require automatic networking. You can’t add a published service to a network adapter that is connected to a Manual network. If the Add Published Service button is missing, you must first complete the following steps:

    1. Create an automatic network.
    2. Attach the VM to the automatic network.

    The Add published service window displays.

  3. Either select from the common connection methods in the By name menu, or type a custom port number in the By port field.

  4. Click Add Published Service.
  5. Skytap creates a published service with an internal port number and a public address.

    Show Published Services

    • The Internal port is the port you selected to open in the previous step. This is the port used by the VM application or service.
    • The Public address is the URL exposed on the public Internet; use this address to connect to this VM. For more information, see Connecting to a VM using a published service.
  6. Configure the VM to support the remote connection. The specific requirements vary, depending on the port and application you’re connecting to. For example, to connect with RDP, remote access must be enabled on the VM. For some applications, the VM firewall rules may need to be edited to allow traffic over the port you are publishing.
