Implement Custom Network Routes in Azure Virtual Network

In this hands-on lab, you are working as an Azure network engineer for Street Wise, a company that produces high-tech GPS applications. You’ve been asked to create a custom network route in order to route traffic heading for the server through a virtual appliance for inspection. To do so, you’ll use custom routes to direct traffic bound for the server's virtual machine to a virtual appliance first, and then onward to the server.

  1. Challenge

    Create a Route Table and a Route

    Create a route that specifies that traffic bound for the server virtual machine's subnet should first hop to the virtual appliance's IP address.

    Make sure you create the route table in the same region as the other resources.

  2. Challenge

    Associate the Route Table to a Subnet

    Associate the route table to the user virtual machine’s subnet.

  3. Challenge

    Enable IP Forwarding on the Virtual Appliance

    On the NIC of the virtual appliance virtual machine, enable IP forwarding.

  4. Challenge

    Test That Routing Is Working

    Log in to the user virtual machine via remote desktop with the credentials provided on the lab page and use the tracert command to test if traffic is hopping to the virtual appliance first before heading to the server virtual machine's IP address.
