  • Go to your VM in portal. In overview you'll see 'Public IP address'. Click on it and go to configuration. Here you can set 'DNS name label' that will allow you to Access your VM with xxx.xxx.cloudapp.azure.com

    Access you have is over public IP and it's not possible to resolve machine name over internet. Unless you create P2S/S2S connection and/or edit your local DNS to resolve it.
