Public IP for incoming VPN connections

Before we can accept VPN connections from our on-premises network over the Internet we would need to have a public IP address in our virtual network. This is the IP address that our Cisco ASA will connect to in order to actually establish the site-to-site VPN. The virtual network gateway (see below) will also be listening on this address.

So, go ahead and add the Public IP address resource to our resource group.

Public IP

When creating the public IP address, specify the following parameters.

Setting Name Value
IP Version IPv4
SKU Basic
Name vpn-public-ip
Assignment Dynamic

Wait till this IP address is visible in your list of resources.
