Viewing a Public IP Address

Updated at: Aug 25, 2020 GMT+08:00


This topic describes how to view a public IP address.

  • After you purchase a public IP address, Anti-DDoS automatically enables the protection by default, and protects your public IP address against DDoS attacks.
  • You are not allowed to disable Anti-DDoS after it has been enabled.


  • You have obtained a username and password for logging in to the management console.
  • You have purchased at least one public IP address.


  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Click in the upper left corner of the management console and select the region and project.
  3. click . Under Security, choose Anti-DDoS.

    • Click Enable Anti-DDoS for All IP Addresses to enable the protection for all unprotected IP addresses in the current region.
    • After the default Anti-DDoS protection settings are enabled, traffic is scrubbed when its volume reaches 120 Mbit/s. You can modify Anti-DDoS protection settings according to Configuring an Anti-DDoS Protection Policy.
    • Anti-DDoS provides a 500 Mbit/s mitigation capacity against DDoS attacks. Traffic that exceeds 500 Mbit/s from the attacked public IP addresses will be routed to the black hole and the legitimate traffic will be discarded. Therefore if you may suffer from volumetric attacks exceeding 500 Mbit/s, we recommend you to purchase HUAWEI CLOUD Advanced Anti-DDoS (AAD) for enhanced protection.
    • The All statuses drop-down box enables you to specify a status so that only public IP addresses of the selected status are displayed.
    • Enter a public IP address or a key word of a public IP address in the search box and click or to search for the desired public IP address.
