How to Setup a Google Cloud Server
Google Cloud is a cloud platform offered by Google. Some people prefer Google cloud over other cloud server options because Google Clouds Speeds are great for the price and also because upon registering, you get a free $300 credit to use. This essentially means you can run your server for free for a decent amount of time
Step 1. Getting Started: You want to go over to Google Cloud's website and login to a gmail account. Once you do, click on the Get Started For Free button. From there just follow the on screen steps!
Note: Yes it does ask for a credit card but don't worry, they won't change you unless you go over the $300 limit which you can keep track of your balance in the settings.
Step 2. Making the Server: Once you've made your project you are ready to make your server!
Firstly, you want to go over to the Navigation menu which is located in the top left hand corner, Next to the Google Cloud Platform logo.
Secondly, when you click on the three lines in the top left it opens a menu. On the menu find the compute section and from there you want to click on Compute Engine and then VM instances. You'll be greeted by a screen that looks like this:
From here click create and you'll see your server's setup settings. Here you can choose The Region, Zone and the Machine Type.
Choose the one that's closest to where your proxies are located!
The Machine type is the specs of your server the higher you go up the more the hourly cost goes up. I recommend 4 vCPUs or 8 vCPUs anything more would just be overkill.
For OS I recommend Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter or the Windows Server 2016 R2 Datacenter. Both will work fine with Cyber.
Make sure both boxes are ticked.
Now you are ready to deploy your server. This can take up to 5 minutes at first.
Step 3. Using Your Server: To start you will know your server is ready when your internal and external IP addresses are visible! When you are able to see both IPs, click on the name of the server and this should bring to a new page where you can view all your server settings.
Firstly what you want to do on Windows is search for Remote Desktop Connection. This how you will connect and control your server.
Secondly, you should copy the external IP that is in your server settings under the section Network interfaces
Once you copy your external IP, all you need to do is paste it in the Remote Desktop Connection field where it says Computer
Thirdly, before you can connect you need to set a username and password. You can set the username on your server settings page, under the button that says Set Windows Password
Once you choose your password, Google Cloud will generate a unique password for you.
Make sure you copy your password and save it because if you disconnect from your server you will have to generate a new password!
Now we have our username and password we are ready to connect! So now you want to head back to Remote Desktop Connection and input your Username!
Once you have your username in, simply hit the connect button and you'll be prompted to insert your password!
Note: Don't forget to hit Remember me so you don't need to generate a new password every time
Remote desktop should open a new window logging you into the server! This should look familiar as it basically just starting up your own computer. When you first open the server, you will be greeted by the Server Manager.
Finally: In the Server manager you'll need to go Local Server on the left side of the Server manager window
From here you want to find the setting IE Enhanced Security Configuration. Its located on the right side of the properties.
Click the blue highlighted On
Make sure you set both of the settings to Off
Once this is finished you'll need to head over Here and Download Net Framework 4.7.2 This is required for Cyber to run.
Once That is Finished you are ready to Install CyberAIO on your brand new Google Cloud Server! Don't forget to authenticate your proxies IPs if that is required for your proxies and also don't forget to login to your Gmails! When you are finished with your server all you need to do is navigate to the Google Cloud console page were your server is located and hit Stop. It will shut down your server but keep everything on it so you don't need to reinstall everything each new drop!
