Good afternoon all,

 

We have several production critical websites blocked when browsing through a WVD instance.  Truepeoplesearch.com, Ticketmaster.com, and Whitepages.com.  These websites most likely have blocked Azure based IP's due to other tenants abusing the limit.

 

For now, we have been using a Chrome VPN extension to workaround this issue but is not a hard fix and we are already having issues with this approach.

 

Obviously, standard DNS filtering tools will not work since the website request is still coming form an Azure based IP.

 

What 3rd party solutions do you recommend to route traffic through a safe IP for these particular websites?

 

Thank you

@Kompressor_82 We had an issue with accessing a web page kind of similar to your situation. So I put a public load balancer in front of the WVD hosts so we could have a static IP which wasn't shared. You could try that?
