Port forwarding is used to configure public access to the virtual machine, which allows inbound traffic to be directed to any TCP/UDP port from the account’s public IP address to the private IP address of the virtual machine. To configure port forwarding, you must specify:

  • Name (to display in UI and identify port forwarding)
  • The protocol by which the incoming traffic will be transmitted: TCP or UDP
  • External port - you can use any free port within the account (this is checked automatically), by default ports 80, 443, and 2200 are occupied by system services. We also recommend using ports starting from 8000.
  • Internal port - the port on which the virtual machine will receive traffic

Note: Please note that by default, incoming traffic is blocked by security groups, so you need to allow traffic on a specific port and protocol in the Networking/Firewall service.

  • Virtual machine: select virtual machine and internal address

Note: One virtual machine cannot use different public addresses

After saving the settings and reloading the page, port forwarding will be displayed in the tab below, indicating the public address of the account and the external port. (you can use access by domain name ACC.alb.LOC.icdc.io)
