A couple of days ago, we announced that you now can use Azure Active Directory to authentication Point-to-Site (P2S) VPN connections to your Azure virtual network. Before you were able to connect to your Azure virtual network (VNet) by using certificate-based or RADIUS authentication, however, if you are using the Open VPN protocol, you can now also use Azure Active Directory authentication. In this blog post, I will walk you through how you can set up an Azure P2S VPN connection using Azure AD authentication.
To set this up, you will need a couple of things in place before we get started. Here are the prerequisites:
- An Azure Active Directory Tenant – Create a new tenant
- Azure AD users – Add users to an Azure Active Directory Tenant
- Gateway with Point-to-Site VPN connection – Configure a Point-to-Site VPN connection to a VNet using native Azure certificate authentication: Azure portal
If you already have this in place, you are good to go.
