Build an Azure site-to-site VPN for DevTest
Integration testing in a hybrid cloud architecture can be challenging when you have to test between on-premises resources and cloud workloads. Azure’s site-to-site VPN makes it possible to extend your on-premises network to private virtual networks on the cloud.
Usually, such a setup requires hardware that supports IPsec VPN. Azure site-to-site VPN requires a device that is IPsec IKEv2 compliant.

Occasionally, I need to spin up a few local virtual machines on my Windows 10 laptop to test a networking concept. Building a practical multi-machine configuration can be challenging. For me, this typically means:
The VM host can connect to the guest VMs.
The guest VMs can connect to the host.
The guest VMs can connect to each other.
