As the dialog bog show up, enter necessary info such service’s name, URL, region, and the package itself.

Waiting for a few moment will change your deployment’s status from Initializing, Busy, and finally Ready.


Try to click on the url that we’ve specify may most likely result you the error page that we’ve defined earlier since it will fail to connect to our on-premise machine.


Creating Azure Connect Groups

Now,go to Virtual Network Menu,select the subscription and click on Create Group on the ribbon.


As the dialog box will show up, enter the group name, description (optional), select the “from” endpoint (which is our on-premise machine), and “to” endpoint (which is azure instance). Make sure that check the “Allow connection between endpoints in group” checkbox. Click Create when you are done.
