  3. Navigate to the Compute Engine section.
  4. Click on "VM Instances" in the left sidebar to view your virtual machines.
  5. Locate the Linux server you want to assign an external IP to and click on its name.
  6. On the VM instance details page, click the "Edit" button at the top.
  7. Scroll down to the "Network interfaces" section and click on the network interface you want to assign an external IP to.
  8. On the right side, click on the "Ephemeral external IP" dropdown.
  9. Select the "Static" option from the dropdown.
