Configure the Network For Your Virtual Machines (Azure)

  1. Create an Azure Virtual Network
  2. Create an Azure VPN Gateway
  3. Learn to Work with Azure ExpressRoute

 Oddly, none of those options are in a Sandbox, and require an actual Azure subscription for learners, like some other segments. Ah well, let's briefly talk about Azure VPNs.

Azure VNs provide the same network capabilities as regular VNs, or even VLANs that are spread out physically, and you may need to jump onto Layer 3 to access your virtual neighbor in another cubicle.




  • Isolation
  • Segmentation
  • Internet communications
  • Route and Filter Network Traffic
VMs in Azure can connect to the internet by default. Makes sense, but maybe you don't want that. Perhaps you just want to set it up and play around on it.

My guess is that you go to the Dashboard, see the list on the left, hit Virtual Machines and poke around for an option to turn it off.

Or, you could make an Access Control List and set it to deny all for incoming traffic.

Or set it to a private IPv4 address that can't be routed over the internet.

When you create a virtual network, remember to consider the location of the users and the machine hosting it.

When you've made them all, go to the Virtual Networks tab and connect them together.

You can even do it in Powershell first by making the network and then making the machines and delegating the network they should be within.



Gosh, that is so much easier that fiddling around in the VirtualBox settings. What a time to be alive.

Azure Networking Options - Core Cloud Services

I have done a lot of AWS things on here. Time to give Azure some attention. After all, since employers don't think Cisco or COMPTIA certifications are important, maybe Microsoft ones are?

First, let's really think about why these are the two biggest cloud services providers in the world:

They've been doing internet things for a long time.Amazon launched in 1995, a virtual bookstore.
Microsoft, well, you know. 

They've lived, breathed, and frankly, created, infrastructure that we use today, that they're selling to us today. Of course the Store of Everything and the Company of Everything would encourage us to put everything in their hands.

Also: Azure has a lot less silly names for modules. Important. I appreciate straightforwardness.


I said 'a lot less', not '100% sensible names'

Microsoft has a clear set of Azure Fundamentals that anyone can interact with. Let's talk about networking basics, basically to say, again, "Hi, employers, I have an …

Search and Infiltrate: How to Deeply Investigate a Company's People [6/4/2020]

Latest Update - 6/4/2020


This is a bit of an impromptu post after reading this article.

I had a small thread about this on Twitter, a blog post is a lot better to get the information out in a clear way.

Have you ever used Recruitin.net, came across a group of people who match Your Dream Company, Dream Location, and do your Dream Job on LinkedIn...and they're not active?

What was the POINT, am I right?  A place for professionals to network, but they're not active ...because they have a job to do! You want to be like that!

Unfortunately, in this day and age, unless you have a 'relationship' with someone, they're not going to help you.

Hm. 

(Note: 'relationship' is different than relationship).

I'm not here to talk bad about recruiters - They have a difficult job, I know I couldn't do it! - And even they want a relationship before they place you somewhere, competency be damned.

What do you do instead?
