I just read an excellent blog post by Shannon Fritz on how to setup an Azure site to site VPN using Windows Server 2012 as your corporate side endpoint. While currently this is not a supported configuration, many of us don’t have the supported routers laying around that we can test this with.

With Azure Virtual Machines you can create servers running in Microsoft datacenters that can be added to your corporate with a site to site VPN. This is done, just like many of you do to add your remote office or datacenter to your network, by using a site to site VPN. Many customers link their  offices together this way because it is much less expensive than using a dedicated line.

If you want to test Azure Virtual Machines and have those machines available on your corporate network then Shannon’s post is a great how to step by step post. Just follow the link below.
