Configure a secondary IP in a router

Hello:

Got a Cisco RV016 multi-WAN router.
Currently configured with one of the 12 available static IP addresses (provided by ISP) for RDP purposes.
How do I go about configuring another of those 12 IPs to a VPN device on my LAN?
Where in my router should I look? I don't believe it is port forwarding, since I first need to setup the new public IP in my router, correct?

Thank you

I do not think you can setup additional IP addresses but there is another way.
Look in Advanced Routing. Set it as a gateway. Turn on RIP. Set the destination IP as one of your additional static IPs. set the netmask to match you ISP. Set the default gateway address of the LAN side router address. Set the interface to the same as your Internet connection.

I think you can add up to 30 of these. Never done it, only read about it.

do you actually have 12 RDP servers behind the router?

Hi bbao,
Technodweeb helped me with the issue.
Ultimately, what I did was this: I have 12 IPs from the ISP and one router.
I connected the ISPs modem to a dumb 12-port switch.
From there, I connected 1 ethernet cable to my router. and I connected another one to another router setup with a different IP address.

Thanks.
