Problems mapping a drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Im new to azure and looking for some tips.

    What I am trying to achieve is to map network drive using a vpn to my azure storage.

    Is this possible?

    I have been into my control panel and have an active endpoint setup for my dev laptop. All seemed to go well.

    But, I am completely stumped on where to find the unc of my storage so i can vpn in?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Windows Azure blob storage stands by HTTP instead of windows file sharing protocol. However, several tools are available for us to work with blob storage on our local machine. For example: http://azurestorageexplorer.codeplex.com/.
