Configuring VNet Peering In Microsoft Azure

In this demo, I’m going to show you how to configure VNet Peering in Microsoft Azure.

Introduction

VNet Peering allows communication between peered networks. It provides high bandwidth between all the resources.

Step 1

Log into your account on Azure Portal here.

In the dashboard, choose to “Create a resource” under the new select “Networking”, then select "Virtual network".

Step 2

In this demo, we need two Virtual Networks. The information about the configuration of both is given below. 

  • Name - BattiVNet1
    • IP Address Space – 10.10.0.0/16
    • Subnet Range – 10.10.0.0/24
  • Name - ColomboVNet1
    • IP Address Space – 192.168.1.0/24
    • Subnet Range – 192.168.1.0/24

Enter the Name, Address space, Resource group, and Subnet. Then, click “Create”.

Follow the same process to create the ColomboVNet1 Virtual Network.

Step 4

To verify our “BattiVnet1” network's address space information, click the BattiVnet and find the address space,i.e., 10.10.0.0/16.

Step 6

Enter the name for Peering. In this demo, our BattiVnet1 Peering name is “BattiVNetToColomboVNet”. Under the Virtual Networks part, we need to choose our second Virtual Network. In this demo, we have “ColomboVnet1”, so select “ColomboVnet1” and then click “OK”.

Step 7

Now, we can check our “PEERING STATUS”. It’s initiated. If we set up our next peering, it will get automatically connected.
