In this blog post, I record the process that I went through to:
- Setup a site to site VPN from my on-premise lab network (simulating a corporate network) to Microsoft Azure
- Setup a VM in Azure
This scenario simulates a situation where a customer wants to extend their on-premise environment to the Microsoft Azure cloud. A common example is where the customer wants to host machines in Microsoft Azure but needs access to resources on their corporate network (e.g. Active Directory, or Databases).
In this scenario, I am using on-premise Windows 2012 R2 Routing and Remote Access capability to serve as the endpoint for the Site-to-Site VPN tunnel from Azure.
