Lab: Introduction to Virtual Network Connectivity


Lab Overview

In this lab, you will create 3 virtual networks in two different regions. You will configure site-to-site connectivity between the regions using a VPN Gateway. You will next configure a client machine (the lab virtual machine) to connect to one of the virtual networks using point-to-site connectivity. Finally, you will configure virtual network to virtual network connectivity using virtual network peering. This will also allow traffic from the 3rd virtual network to transit over the VPN gateway. 

Note: This lab is similar to the labs in the Azure Infrastructure as a Service class. It is designed for students that want to dive right in.

What You Will Learn

  • Understand how to connect virtual networks across Azure regions using site-to-site VPN
  • Configure point-to-site connectivity for individual client machines to access resources in a virtual network securely
  • Configure virtual network peering between two virtual networks in the same region and allow traffic to transit over the gateway

Exercise 1: Overview and Environment Setup

In this exercise, you will create a Virtual Machine in Azure that will be used to complete the exercises in this lab.
Labs:
  • Exercise 1: Overview and Environment Setup

Exercise 2: Create a VM in a Virtual Network

In this exercise, you will create a virtual machine and a virtual network in a region. This virtual network and virtual machine will be used as the source to connect to a virtual machine and virtual network in a remote region.
Labs:
  • Exercise 2: Create a VM in a Virtual Network

Exercise 3: Connecting Azure Regions

In this exercise, you will create a new virtual network in a second region and establish connectivity between the regions using a site-to-site virtual private network (VPN). 
Labs:
  • Exercise 3: Connecting Azure Regions

Exercise 4: Configuring Point-to-Site

In this exercise, you will configure your lab virtual machine to connect to a virtual network using a point-to-site connection. This scenario is ideal for requirements that require an individual computer to connect securely over the Internet to resources running in an Azure Virtual Network.
Labs:
  • Exercise 4: Configuring Point-to-Site

Exercise 5: Configuring Virtual Network Peering

In this exercise, you will create a new virtual network in the same region as the second virtual network and configure direct peering for connectivity.

  • Exercise 5: Configuring Virtual Network Peering

Exercise 6: Free Resources in your Subscription

In this exercise, you will delete the resource groups for the resources you created in this lab. This will delete all the artifacts created in Azure for this lab.
