You add multiple network interfaces when you create an instance.

  • On the Console, you add network interfaces on the Create an Instance page, in the Networking -> Network interfaces section.

  • On the gcloud command line tool, use the instances create command. Include the --network-interface flag for each interface, followed by any appropriate networking keys, such as ([network | subnet], private-network-ip, address).

The first interface is always created as nic0 and it is always the default interface. 

  1. Go to the Create an instance page in the Google Cloud Platform Console. 

  2. Complete the sections for the instance name, zone, machine type, and other basic aspects of the instance.

  3. Complete fields on the Management and Disks tabs.

  4. On the Networking tab, click Add network interface.

  5. Choose a network.

  6. If there are multiple subnets in the VPC network, choose a subnet.

  7. To assign a custom internal IP address to the interface, on the Internal IP drop-down menu, choose Custom and then type in the IP address.

  8. To indicate that you do not want an external IP address, on the External IP drop-down menu, choose None.

  9. To assign a static external IP address, on the External IP drop-down menu, choose New static IP, type in the Name and description and click Reserve.

  10. To enable IP forwarding, choose On on the IP forwarding drop-down menu.

  11. To add more network interfaces, click Add network interface and follow steps 5-10 above
