  • Hi Sravan,

    You will have to first open the port 80 for HTTP access to your website via the internet. To do this follow the below steps:

    1-      Click on your VM in the Azure portal.

    2-      Click on Network Interfaces > The IP address tab > Network Security groups > Click on the NSG that is available there.

    3-      On the tab that appears click on Inbound Security rules > Add > Click on the Service dropdown and select http > Click on OK.

    4-      Wait for the rule to get updated. Once done go ahead and access the IIS website via any browser using the below format.

    http:// <DNS name of the VM>.<location of the VM datacenter>


    To setup a DNS name for your VM (if not already set) follow the below steps:

    1-      Click on the VM blade in the Azure portal.

    2-      Click on the Overview tab > On the left hand side under Public IP address/DNS name label click on the entry below.

    3-      In the configuration tab > enter the desired DNS name for the VM in the DNS name label (optional) box. Click on Save.

    4-      Once the changes take effect you should be able to use the above steps to access your website via the internet.

    If this didn't help then just Let me know for walk through process as well.

    Thanks & Regards,

    sharath aluri
