  • Hi Ramesh,

    Thank you for posting here!

    Web Application Proxy can be run on Windows Azure VMs, but there are no recommended scenarios for running it on Windows Azure VMs.

    Azure has a software load balancer as the entry point to your Azure VMs from internet-facing clients. If you would like a reverse proxy in front of your services, you would need to have a separate VM created to host the proxy.

    You can also use Application Request Routing (ARR) to achieve this.

    Refer to - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6200222/how-do-i-create-a-reverse-proxy-that-runs-in-azure

    I hope this helps!

    Best Regards
