I have created a Virtual Network in the preview portal based on the guide, and I created a gateway to our vpn device. I created a VM for the Virtual Network and an initial overview over it's ipconfig seems to show no problems (Ip addresses and dns server
and such are fine). But I have found some other problems:
a) I can't actually see these machines on the network from my local computer, that is I can't ping the VM's ip address from my machine. I can ping my local computer from the VM however.
b)There is another significant problem in that all the web services like our subversion repository or other corporate sites are completely inaccessible to me.
I can see the external network fine, I can even see the local IIS server on my local machine from the VM. Is there a specific limitation of azure in terms of security that would explain this behavior?
