Azure Deployment instructions don't work - web interface won't load

L0 Member

I tried deploying the vm series firewall in an Azure environment using the steps here 


I followed every step exactly as indicated but when I got to step 5 the web interface won't load, it just gives "This site can’t be reached" (Google Chrome) or "Hmmm… can't reach this page" (Edge) error and there's a banner at the top of the VM page in Azure saying "<> virtual machine agent status is not ready. Troubleshoot the issue". Clearly there are other steps involved that the instructions are not talking about.


How do I get this to work?
