Step 6. Specify AWS IP Settings
At the IP Assignment step of the wizard, select a type of the IP address that you want assign to the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance:
- If you want to assign a dynamic IP to the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance, select Dynamic IP address.
- If you want to assign an Elastic IP to the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance, select Static IP address (elastic IP). You can either select an existing Elastic IP address from the drop-down list, or create a new Elastic IP. To create a new Elastic IP, select (create new).
For an IP to be displayed in the list of available Elastic IPs, it must be allocated as described in Allocating an Elastic IP address.
After a Veeam Backup for AWS appliance is deployed, Veeam Backup & Replication will use the public IP to connect to the appliance. If you want to connect to the appliance using the private IP, follow the instructions provided in this Veeam KB article.
