Azure External NAT - Without LoadBalancer

L0 Member


  I have an issue. I have an internal server which needs to be reached from the internet.I have got a public ip but i am unable to assign it interface of the firewall for obvious reasons. Also i only have an option to associate it with a Load Balancer. Is there a way I can get this NAT working without a Load Balancer. (Apologies if this is simple,have spent a lot of time trying to get this working but no luck)

Try to use a Standard SKU public IP address instead of a Basic SKU address:

Thanks Mike for the document. I did go through this. But in my case i need few public facing ip's. When i try to associate it with an external ip it does not let me do so. This is because i have a private ip for interface which is being NATed Currently. So when i try to associate it does not let me even fireup the firewall. Can i get this done via subinterface please let me know your thoughts. I cannot by pass TAGing in this case.
