HOW TO: Configuring your network in Windows

Since we do not offer DHCP services at this time, you will need to manually configure your IP address for your KVM VPS. Here's a guide for setting up IPv4 in a Windows OS using the virtio drivers (IPv6 can be configured the same way).
  1. Navigate to the IPv4 tab in Wyvern and make note of your VPSs IP and the gateway listed. At this time all subnet masks are 255.255.255.0.
  2. Open Device Manager and locate an object called "Ethernet Controller" with a yellow exclamation point next to it.
  3. Right-click that object and click on "Update Driver Software...".
  4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".
  5. Browse to or enter "A:\amd64" if you still have your Windows ISO mounted, if not you can mount the "Windows virtio drivers" ISO (requires a Start and Stop of the VPS) and navigate to the amd64 folder on the CD drive instead.
  6. Make sure the box for "Include subdirectories" is checked and click the "Next" button.
  7. Check "Always trust software from Red Hat, Inc." and click the "Install" button.
  8. If it installed correctly you'll be able to edit your network adapter properties and configure your IPs manually which is pretty straight forward (images below).
