Hello!

We have a client that is looking to utilize Windows Virtual Desktop. The roadblock we're having is that one of their Web Apps requires geolocation based on the users IP address. Obviously, when a user logs in to WVD, their IP address is an IP from whatever datacenter the WVD VM is running in. 

 

With that being said, is there a way to redirect the users local IP address to WVD? I know this is possible in solutions like VMware Horizon, but it would be great if it was possible on WVD. Any help would be appreciated.

@allenstalker You can setup a static IP on an Azure load balancer that will route all outbound VM traffic via that IP.
