Virtual network gateways enable us to connect our on-premises network to an Azure data center. We can then extend our IT presence into the cloud by integrating Azure resources with our local Active Directory. A VPN gateway is a fast, secure way to start our organization's move to the cloud. In this hands-on lab, we connect one virtual network (VNet) to another in an Azure resource group. We then test connectivity between virtual machines located in each VNet. While this lab is completely contained in Azure, the procedure and concepts can be used for local network-to-Azure connectivity as well. Note: The lab has been updated with pre-deployed Azure virtual network gateways.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
