Azure express route and forced tunneling

Iron Contributor



I would like to advertise default routes to enable force tunneling on our express route circuit. Are there any potentila issues I need to look out for? Specifically to do with microsoft services such as Vm access to storage accounts etc.

Hi Paul!


If I understood right, you intend to force all traffic from the VNET to ExpressRoute, right? If yes, the only issue is about the Azure PaaS routing. Because they have a public IP, the traffic will be routed using your on-prem infrastructure and then, back to cloud by internet. Also, you will be charged for this egress traffic.


@Rafael Canto Is there any way to exclude MS services from the forced tunnel?
