Static IP or IP range for ACI FQDN

Hello,

We have created a SFTP server using Azure container instance. The container instance has a FQDN, however our client has requested a public IP range for the FQDN so they can configure their firewall accordingly. Is there a list of IP ranges available for ACIs ? I tried looking here - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=56519 (Azure IP Ranges and Service Tags – Public Cloud) however couldn't find subnet currently assigned to my ACI, so suspect this isn't the correct list.

It would be great to assign the ACI a static public IP, but after a little research, it seems like a convoluted and expensive process (using application gateway).

Lastly, any ideas what triggers the IP to change? e.g. I noticed that after redeploying the ACI template, the IP address changed...wasn't too sure if it was that that triggered the IP change or restarting the ACI.

Any guidance would be much appreciated. :)

Hello,

I am not quite sure, if the following method works for you. However, I am suggesting to try this option.

You may create Container based Azure Web for this page: https://portal.azure.com/#create/Microsoft.WebSite

(Also refer my blog: http://cloudcompute.info/publish-docker-images-from-container-registry-in-azure-app/)

Once you have this ready with your container application, you can assign a custom domain for the application. This custom domain will have a static IP from your provider (Go Daddy etc.)
Following reference from my blog helps on this step

Hello.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Can I apply a custom domain to an existing ACI? Just a bit of background, I used this template to deploy the SFTP ACI sftp-on-azure






Thanks

Hi,
You may check, if you can assign the custom domain for the ACI url provided by Azure. Please follow the blog post provided earlier for this

Thanks,
Manu

Hi, thanks for your reply. I have checked your blog post and I do not have the option "Custom domains"

Hello,

I personally deployed the docker and verified the possibility of assigning a custom domain to the sftp container. You may follow the steps as below:

Open App Services

Select 'Docker Container' in Publish selection

SKU and Size should be a paid plan

On the Docker page select 'Private Registry' in Image Selection

Server URL is your container Image url in GitHub : https://github.com/Azure-Samples/sftp-creation-template/tree/master/

Publish with all other preferred values.Once Publishing is done, go to the overview page and see the ftp url, username etc.
You can go to 'Custom Domain' section and see the Public IP assigned to the application. You may use the IP or assign a new custom domain as explained in my Blog
