Provision with Internal IP + Port??

Question

Hi,

I have a specific target for my VPS's and I want to use a single server IP and a pool of internal IP's.

When provisioning the VPS is it possible to provide the customer with the main server IP and a Port?

 

I have the everything working as I need it to be in terms of IP's, Ports, VPS's etc, but I am manually giving the customers the login details at the moment.

Is there a way to automate the provisioning in this situation?

I am currently using virtualizor, but with SolusVM being taken over recently I am hoping to one day switch back to that.

 

 

Thanks for your help

Virtualizor has a module for blesta, he will auto provisioning the vps in blesta without a manual intervention .

yes but it can only provision with different IP's for each server.

If I want to have a shared IP for all VPS's using different ports per VPS, how can I auto provision that?

VPS's must have a dedicated IP. Are you provisioning with an internal IP, and providing SSH on a single routable IP for all servers, and doing port forwarding of some sort? Isn't it a manual process to provision port forwarding? If so, where is that information coming from and how will the module know about it?

Hi Paul,

 

yes at the moment it is a manual process.

I am doing it exactly as you describe using a pool of internal IP's. Each internal IP corresponds to a port on a predefined list that I have already configured in my firewall.

for example intenal IP allocated to the VPS = 10.0.0.10:3389

to access that as a customer they will connect to ExternalIP :2010

then 10.0.0.11:3389 = ExternalIP :2011

etc...

 

I understand the module has no way of knowing how I have configured my port forwarding and the list of services each host could require is infinite so there can't be anything predefined built in that would suite everyone.

I'm more asking how I could achieve sending the external IP and port in the provisioning email instead of the internal IP.

Something like...

 

if provisioned IP = 10.0.0.10

then send customer ExternalIP :2010

 

Some kind of table where I could enter IP and port forward would be great, is that doable? I imagine I would need to commission someone to make an addon for that, which is fine if its doable.

failing that, is there another way to achieve it?

 

Thanks for all your help everyone,

I know this is an unusual way of doing things, but it suits my particular situation.
