So, go to the network devices, choose your network card and change it... but i'm afraid, it won't help you, because internal (LAN) address is not the same as WAN IP address.

You can't change local loopback from It is defined in the RFC[^], it is part of the standard.

I suppose, your "server" has DHCP. You simply need to have your original address AND your desired extra address ( You can switch to static ip on your interface, and add both addresses, like described here:[^].

Not with dhcp, you have to switch to stratic.
Or, you can add avirtual interface an enable routing
