Running pfSense as an Azure IaaS Virtual Machine

A client of mine has asked me if it would be possible to run pfSense as a Microsoft Azure IaaS Virtual Machine. pfSense® software is a free, open source customized distribution of FreeBSD, specifically tailored for use as a firewall and router that is entirely managed via web interface. At that time, I had in mind that running FreeBSD 10 under Hyper-V and in Microsoft Azure, is something that can be done. So, I decided to build a deployment as a Proof of Concept and to write a blog post about t

Secure Azure Virtual Network using Network Security Groups

The way that Network Virtualization is implemented in Hyper-V and subsequently in Microsoft Azure IaaS, enables explicitly the Routing between Virtual Subnets. This is the reason why the traffic between Virtual Subnets, that are part of the same Virtual Network, is unrestricted unless we have applied Network Security Groups. Network Security Groups Is a way to control traffic between Virtual Subnets of an Azure Virtual Network as well as the Internet. Moreover, Network Security Groups provide s

Create a Virtual Machine with Multiple NICs in Azure IaaS

Every time I present a session about Microsoft Azure IaaS, the most common question is about Virtual Machines’ capability of getting more than one Virtual Network Interface (vNIC). At TechEd Europe 2014, Microsoft announced support for multiple Network Interfaces (vNICs) in Azure VMs, as well as other additions to Azure Virtual Networks like Network Security Groups. Moreover, the capability of adding more than one vNIC to a Virtual Machine will enable Virtual Appliances scenarios like Firewalls

Integrate Microsoft Azure Active Directory tenant with Office 365

One question that is coming up too often, at least at TecEd Europe 2014, is if it’s possible to integrate an Azure AD that you got when you signed up to Office 365 with the one you have got when you subscribed to Microsoft Azure. The short answer is yes, it is possible and if you want to learn how this integration happens, then keep reading! This scenario means that there are two separate directories. The first one was created when you setup your Office 365 Subscription, while the second one ca
