Create a Virtual Network for Site-‐to-‐Site Cross-‐
Premises Connectivity
This tutorial walks you through the steps to create a cross-‐premises virtual network. The type of connection we will create is a
site-‐to-‐site connection. If you want to create a point-‐to-‐site VPN by using certificates and a VPN client, see Configure a Point-‐
to-‐Site VPN in the Management Portal (﴾﴿.
This tutorial assumes you have no prior experience using Azure. It's meant to help you become familiar with the steps required
to create a site-‐to-‐site virtual network. If you're looking for design scenarios and advanced information about Virtual Network,
see the Azure Virtual Network Overview (﴾‐us/library/windowsazure/jj156007.aspx)﴿.
After completing this tutorial, you will have a virtual network where you can deploy your Azure services and virtual machines,
which can then communicate directly with your company's network.
For information about adding a virtual machine and extending your on-‐premises Active Directory to Azure Virtual Network,
see the following:
How to Custom Create a Virtual Machine (﴾﴿
Install a Replica Active Directory Domain Controller in Azure Virtual Network (﴾
For guidelines about deploying AD DS on Azure Virtual Machines, see Guidelines for Deploying Windows Server Active
Directory on Azure Virtual Machines (﴾‐us/library/windowsazure/jj156090.aspx)﴿.
For additional Virtual Network configuration procedures and settings, see Azure Virtual Network Configuration Tasks

In this tutorial you will learn:
How to setup a basic Azure virtual network to which you can add Azure services.
How to configure the virtual network to communicate with your company's network.

Windows Live account with at least one valid, active subscription.
Address space (﴾in CIDR notation)﴿ to be used for the virtual network and subnets.
The name and IP address of your DNS server (﴾if you want to use your on-‐premises DNS server for name resolution)﴿.
A VPN device with a public IPv4 address. You'll need the IP address in order to complete the wizard. The VPN device cannot
be located behind a NAT and must meet the minimum device standards. See About VPN Devices for Virtual Network
(﴾﴿ for more information.
Note: You can use RRAS as part of your VPN solution. However, this tutorial doesn't walk you through the RRAS
configuration steps.
For RRAS configuration information, see Routing and Remote Access Service templates (﴾
Experience with configuring a router or someone that can help you with this step.
The address space for your local network (﴾on-‐premise network)﴿.
