I recently wanted to connect to IIS externally on my Azure VM but despite being able to access it locally, externally it was a no-no.
Exposing IIS is pretty easy if you follow these steps however.
Firstly, find your VM and select it.
Now you need to add a new one. Click on the “+” at the top.
You can see in the image above that there are already two set up.
Lastly, add one named HTTP (I don’t think the name matters), and select port 80 twice as I have done.
That’s it! Try and connect to your machine from your browser – it should work.
