How access your instance from the Internet

Azure allows to have only two external IP addresses per Virtual Machine network adapter: Virtual IP (VIP) and instance-level public IP address (PIP). More details can be found in the following article.

VIPs, DIPs and PIPs in Microsoft Azure

Some Azure Tiers allow to have multiple network interfaces per Virtual Machine, but it is not possible to attach more than one IP address to these interfaces. More details can be found in the following article.

As a result, in most cases it is needed to use NAT to give the instances access to external networks. Please check the following article for instructions.
