Hello! I've included an article that covers the basics of setting up a static IP address. The article also has some hyperlinks on the left side for related articles that may be helpful: https://business.comcast.com/support/article/internet/using-a-static-ip/?linkId=133604154

Thank you. I looked through all articles, still did not work out.  I tried static routing, tried NAT, all failed. What could be wrong?  I just want to open my server to internet. I want to use the static IP I purchased for my server. How can I do that, since my server is not assigned a local private IP already. I tried to search in computer setting without success as well. Thanks again.

I mean my server is now assigned a private IP already.  How can I directly assign or do some routing to get the connection work?

This next article could be of some help. Take a look at it, and if it isn't then let me know and we can go from there. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/reference/ec2/assign-private-ip-addresses.html

Thank you for all the directions. I was able to figure out eventually. There may be different solutions. But my solution was manually setting the static IP address to my server. And everything went from there. Essentially my server has a static public IP, not a private IP. That solved my problem. Nothing else needs to be done from the router/gateway side I think.
