Local Network Gateway

Now we need to deploy the local network gateway. A local is somewhat misleading term here because it is actually a record in the Microsoft Azure that tells the virtual network gateway where to look for external site-to-site on-premises device. See this article for more information.

Setting Name Value
Name vpn-local-network-gateway
Endpoint Type IP Address
IP Address Public IP address of our on-premises Cisco ASA firewall
IP Address Space The IP address space on-premises that have access to our Azure lab, like
Configure BGP settings None
