RRAS server in azure and creating S2S VPN RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello 

                       We are deploying couple of servers in azure which includes Domain controller , File Server and RRAS Server. We want to use this RRAS server in Azure to create a S2S VPN connection to our office location. IS it possible with the RRAS server in azure?

    Do I need to deploy anything on Prem to create a tunnel? 

    Do I need to install anything on the client machine? How the S2S tunnle will created do that the clients can access resources in azure?

  • Hi, 

    RRAS as a feature is not supported in Azure VM. Here is the doc: https://support.microsoft.com/en-in/help/2721672/microsoft-server-software-support-for-microsoft-azure-virtual-machines

    You can still use RRAS to connect to On-Premises , but it is not recommended for Production workloads. When you install RRAS in a VM, there are no HA configuration and it leads to a single point of failure.

  • Hi,

    To create a VPN between an Azure virtual network and your on-premises network, you should use a virtual network gateway. You will need an on-premises endpoint (RRAS server or hardware device, a wide range are supported) with an Internet-facing static IP address.

    For more information, see https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/vpn-gateway/vpn-gateway-howto-site-to-site-resource-manager-portal
