In order to try out the new AZURE portal site (portal.azure.com), as well as Windows 10, I’ve created myself a VM – entitled “Wookie10”.
Within the portal though, I’m unable to “connect” to the VM – the button is disabled !?
It turns out that the provisioning of a VM within Azure (for a Windows ‘client’ machine – not Windows Server) does not add the Endpoints to allow for this.
The steps to resolve this are :
(1) Click on the VM you’re using – click SETTINGS
(2) Choose ENDPOINTS
(3) Click [+ ADD]
(3) Enter the following :
** Make sure to keep the PRIVATE PORT = 3389
NB. Just choose a random port :
(4) Click OK – and wait a few moments – check your “Notifications”
You might need to close the ‘blades’ – and then re-select it.
If you’ve done it correctly, you should be able to do REMOTE DESKTOP :
This will save an RDP file – and you’ll be able to connect….
Thanks Azure !
