SSH File Transfer protocol (SFTP), sometimes called Secure FTP, provides the ability to transfer files between autonomous systems. Azure Storage standard V2 and Premium now supports SFPT access to blob containers. This video goes over how to enable SFTP on a new storage account, then we add local users and connect with SFTP and the WinSCP client.Continue reading “SFTP with Azure Storage is now Generally Availability”
In this video, we create a hub and spoke network in Azure by peering our spoke VNet’s to a centralized, Hub Virtual Network. Then we use a VPN Virtual Network Gateway to enable gateway transit connectivity between the spokes. Next, we configure routing with Azure Route Tables and User Defined Routes (UDR) to send traffic going to other spokes to the hub. Then we log into a virtual machine and verify connectivity.Continue reading “Azure Hub and Spoke Virtual Network (VNet) with a VPN Gateway”
This is the first of a series of videos on Computer Networking Basics. In this video, we go over the OSI model and how it aligns with TCP/IP. This is the basic fundamental to understanding a computer network.Continue reading “Networking Basics, the OSI Model”
This video goes over two ways of restricting access to Microsoft Azures PaaS services; Service Endpoints and Private Endpoints. Both are used to restrict access to PaaS serviced, but work differently. The video gives an overview if the differences and then does a walkthrough of deploying Service Endpoints and Private Endpoints using an Azure Storage account as an example.Continue reading “Azure Virtual Networking Service Endpoints and Private Endpoints”
In this video I go over the benefits of using Azure Proximity Placement Groups and Accelerated networking with Azure IaaS VM’s. I start by explaining what Proximity Placement Groups are and how they work, then go over the basics of Accelerated Networking. After that, I deploy a Proximity Placement Group and accelerated networking and compare results with and without the features enabled.Continue reading “Proximity Placement Groups and Accelerated Networking”
I am back from a week at Microsoft Ignite. This was my first time going, and I’m coming back with a dizzying amount of new information and a suitcase full of swag. I can’t pass the swag along but will do my best with the information.
One item that stood out was from the session I attended on Azure IaaS Server Network Performance. Microsoft Azure Networking now offers up to 30 Gbps depending on the server size. Continue reading “Azure IaaS Server Network Performance”
If you deployed a VM using the new Resource Manager mode in Azure and need to find the IP and if it is static you may have ran across the “Get-AzureVM” command as an option to retrieve IP information. This command is for “Clasic” mode and won’t work in Resource Manager mode.
To get IP information including the internal IP and if it is set dynamic or static, use this command:
Get-AzureRmNetworkInterface -name <NIC_Name> -ResourceGroupName <NIC_ResourceGroup>
Notice that this does not specify the VM Name, it specifies the NIC attached to the VM. The output will give you the IP address and indicate if it is static or dynamic.
