Setup of a Disaster Recovery (DR) site in Microsoft Azure using Lightweight, Software-Defined Networking (SDN) - Part 2

In the previous post, we've talked about how to use Veeam PN to setup site to site VPN from on-premise to Microsoft Azure. Next, we will look on how remote client from external access the resources securely to DR Site (located at Microsoft Azure). To do, you need to download OpenVPN Client from here:-https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/downloads.html

my lab scenario:-


[Scenario Point to Site VPN]
1. Power on Veeam PN Appliance (act as Network hub) on Microsoft Azure. We have temporary turn it off to save Azure credit. VM @ Microsoft Azure which has stopped (deallocated), do not incur compute charges except storage consumption)
2. Access to Veeam PN Appliance, create a new client. (Click on Clients | Standalone computer) and download the configuration file (user.ovpn)



3. From OpenVPN Client, import the configuration file

4. Click Connect


5. Once connected, try to access VM which located in Microsoft Azure using private IP.
Example: - RDP
You able to tracert & ping using private IP as well.



On Veeam PN - Network hub appliance, you can monitor the status mentioning client is "Connected"

That's concluded our testing on remote client access securely to DR located at Microsoft Azure using Veeam PN.
