Since October 2014 it has been possible to add a public IP address to a virtual machine in Azure so that it can be directly connected to by clients on the internet. This bypasses the load balancing in Azure and is primarily designed for those scenarios where you need to test a host without the … Continue reading Setting Instance Level Public IPs on Azure VMs
