Select VPC, if you try adding two Interfaces, you’ll get “We can no longer assign a public IP to your instance”, so assign only one network interface

I have VPC with 2 subnets:192.168.10.0/24 and 192.168.20.0/24. i assigned interface 192.168.10.0 which will be “external”.

I created secondary interface and assigned it to 192.168.20.0 subnet.This one will be internal.

Creating second interface

In EC2 menu click Network Interfaces-Create Network Interface
