Can't connect to my Azure Windows VM with no internet access

Hi All:

Is anyone aware of how to connect to Azure Windows VM with no internet access? Included are the steps I had done that disconnected my Azure VM from the internet:

  1. Connect to the Azure VM through the Private IP of the VM using our Company's Azure VPN.

  2. Run a SonicVPN provided by our client on the Azure VM that disconnects the Azure VM from the internet.

Hello @ChristelLopez-8145,

Microsoft provides a service allied Azure Bastion, that acts as a gateway between your cloud IaaS for VMs and the public connectivity. This removes the security concerns of exposing your Azure VMs to RDP or SSH vulnerabilities.

You can read more about it here:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/bastion/bastion-overview

Hope this helps,
Best regards,

Thanks for answering, I actually already tried connecting using Bastion but the issue still persists. Whenever I turn on the SonicVPN inside the Azure VM, my VM gets disconnected to the internet then it also disconnects my Bastion session.

Bastion host is a good solution for your requirement. easy to setup and configure. .

Otherwise, deploy a VPN gateway in azure vnet and configure site to site / point to site connection to access over private network .

also keep an note that both VPN gateway and Bastion is billable service from azure.
