Connect Hub and Spoke Networks with VNet Peering

*Hub and spoke* is a common network topology used to both isolate and interconnect networked resources securely. Azure includes various tools to help connect and secure resources. In this hands-on lab, we'll use the Azure portal to configure VNet peering, public IP addressing, and network security groups to configure secure RDP connectivity from a spoke network to the hub network.

  1. Challenge

    Configure Access to the Jump Server

    Update: Before starting the lab, please search for the service Public IP address and create an IP address named jumpserver-pubip in the same location as your lab's resource group using the default settings. Use the lab-provided subscription and resource group.

    1. Configure a public IP address for the VM called jumpserver.
    2. Configure the network security group, spoke1-vnet-nsg, to allow inbound RDP access from your public IP address. (Optionally, you may allow all inbound access if you are unable to determine your own IP address.)
  2. Challenge

    Configure Access to the Hub Network

    1. Configure a VNet peer between hub-vnet and spoke1-vnet.
    2. Configure the network security group, hub-vnet-nsg, to allow only RDP from the private IP address of the jumpserver VM.
  3. Challenge

    Test Connectivity

    1. Use a local RDP client, and connect to jumpserver.
    2. From jumpserver, use the built-in RDP client to connect to appserver.
