SSH Access Through Azure LB

MS LB documentation seems to suggest to use PF when traffic needs to be directed to a specific host (i.e. VM), in backend pool.

The problem we are facing is with SSH through LB. Client is using Putty SW and wishes to utilise the 'Proxy' feature within Putty..

Meanwhile I am doing some more digging into this though I suspect it should work without the need to employ PF.

Hello @AjazNawaz-6389

Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform.

If you want to connect to a specific VM via Load Balancer (so the traffic is not being balanced) you have to use inbound NAT rules:

I hope this helps!
