Only 1 IP address


I've tried to use cloudmin on a small server I have (kimsufi, OVH company), but I no luck, so I was wondering, is it possible to use cloudmin with only 1 public IP address? I was thinking maybe it's usable if the domain ( point the the server IP address, and then the system redirects to a local IP address ( for example), but I guess I'm wrong, you need 1 IP address per VM, right?

Thx :)

It depends on what you'll be doing with your virtual machines. For some of our VMs, we use private IP addresses, and only forward the specific ports we need. e.g. port 80 for web service, port 53 for DNS. It's plausible to do that. But, if you need full service from each VM, you'd want an IP address for each one. And, for Virtualmin/Webmin on the VMs, we just forward port ranges to 10000-10010. e.g. 10100-10110 is Webmin on one of our VMs, and 10200-10210 is Webmin on the second, and so on.

So, yes, you can use Cloudmin with one IP, but there may be some limitations, depending on what you're doing with the VMs.

That would have been for different websites (mainly) so all using the port 80, so that won't work ^^ Thank you :)

It sounds like maybe you're looking for some sort of proxy or load balancer? Unfortunately Cloudmin isn't able to act as that, though it may be possible to manually configure such a setup.

You wouldn't need Cloudmin for that part, though Cloudmin could launch the VM's your directing requests to, along with connecting to Virtualmin instances running on those VM's.
