Where to start - new VM with VPN MFA access for Admins and public access for HTTPS

Copper Contributor

Hi, I have been dabbling with Azure VMS for dev for a while but now want to take the plunge with a first production server.


I would like to deploy a Linux VM such that admins use a Point to Site VPN with MFA to access it while public users can access it via https


What azure services do I need ? I have looked at most things but am struggling to understand what will be needed - e.g. do I need Azure AD Premium P2 ? I would like to use a UK data centre but Premium AD is not in the UK but "Azure Active Directory is not available in the UK West region. Please select another region." - does this matter

We have a small team and already have O365 with basic AD.


Thanks, Sean

Azure P2S vpn uses certificates and does not support MFA.
if you want Azure MFA for 365 and Portal access this can be purchased as a standalone service and can be included in another license like In-tune or EMS later.

but for the scenario you mention her no extra services are required.
