In this section, we will see more about managing public and private IP addresses in azure.
- At the beginning of the session, we discussed that these addresses are private.
- Then, how to create public IP addresses? We will search for public IP in all services like shown below
- And, click the same. This will bring us to the below page.
- Here, I already have one which got created automatically when I was creating VM.
- Let’s go ahead create one now by clicking on Add button. It will give use below UI.
- One thing to note here, that public ip sku plan must match load balancer sku.
- We do have option for IPv6 at the load balancer level. But, if you like to use that, then you need to put load balancer in front of that so that IPv6 will travel into virtual machine and will convert the IPv6 IP to IPv4.
- We get the choices between dynamic IP address and static IP address. Static IP address is the address which never changes. This is good, when you want the ip address in somekind of settings like firewall need to be opened up or DNS registration etc.
- We can choose a connection opening timeout. Default is 4 minutes.
- Then, we can enter fully qualified name.
- Now, you can map this a custom domain name, if you need to using your domain name register, a Cname record.
- We get Ipv4 for free, but we can create Ipv6 as well. But, this will be paid. Having said that, below is my final choice.
- Upon creation, it will get listed here.
Thanks for joining me. In the next section, we will see more about route table. Till then stay tuned and happy coding.
