Static IP and DNS Name
We now need to switch the IP configuration of our secure proxy from dynamic to static IP address. To do that open the web-filtering-proxy-vm-ip resource and set it as shown on the following screenshot. Note we are also setting the DNS name of our secure proxy to secure-web-filtering-proxy.westeurope.cloudapp.azure.com.
To verify the DNS name was successfully mapped to the public IP address run the following nslookup command on your admin host.
Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18363.1440] (c) 2019 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. C:\Users\builder>nslookup secure-web-filtering-proxy.westeurope.cloudapp.azure.com Server: dns.google Address: 126.96.36.199 Non-authoritative answer: Name: secure-web-filtering-proxy.westeurope.cloudapp.azure.com Address: 188.8.131.52
We will use this domain name in the next steps of this tutorial in order to generate the secure proxy certificate.
