  • Question

  • Is it possible to connect to an on-premises VPN by using the default OS VPN client inside an Azure VM (without Azure VPN at all)?

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your clear explanation.

    If you wanted to create a connection between the Azure VM and on-peremises resources, you need to create a site-to-site/point-to-site VPN between them. Since you cannot create a site-to-site VPN, you can try to create point-to-site VPN instead since it won't need any VPN device. However, you must configure the virtual network and the virtual network gateway for configuring a point-to-site VPN.

    Best regards,

  • ... by Azure VPN I actually mean Azure Virtual Network service.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your question. However, sorry to say that I am not clear about your needs. I would appreciate it if you can explain it more detailed.

    If you wanted to connect between your virtual network and your on-premises network, you can create a site-to-site VPN connection. In addition, you can also install a VPN package on your client machine to create a point-to-site VPN connection.

  • Hi,

    No... WITHOUT Azure Virtual Network is what I mean.

    I want to connect an Azure VM with an existing on-premises network via VPN.... I just want to use the default OS VPN connection client inside my Azure VM to connect to the on-premises network.... that's it....

    The on-premises network is managed by another company, and they've provided VPN connection details for us to connect. Now I just want to connect my Azure VM with them. I cannot establish a Site-to-Site connection with them by using Azure Virtual Network as I cannot run any VPN device script on their side.... that's why I'm NOT planning to use Azure Virtual Network AT ALL.

    Is the scenario clear now?

    Thanks.
