Is it possible to add ip address to vmkernel nic using web UI in ESXI 6.5

Have added new vmkernal nic in esxi 6.5 we UI. Have set to static, but cannot see an option to set the ip . Do I have to download and use vsphere client to administer fully and set an ip for the kernel ? I thought 6.5 didn't require vsphere client.

The Legacy vSphere Client (C#) is not compatible with ESXi 6.5, and vSphere Client is no longer supported.

You should be able to set a static IP Address to any VMKernel Portgroup.
