How to: Set up Instance Level Public IP in Azure

How to: Set up Instance Level Public IP in Azure 

The ILPIP doesn’t take the place of the VIP (Virtual IP) that is assigned to your cloud service. It’s an additional IP address that can be used to connect directly to your VM. You would assign a ILPIP to a VM if for some reason you needed to connect directly to the VM, instead of using the cloud service VIP:<port number> or endpoints.


By having an ILPIP on your VM, the traffic on just about any port will reach your VM without the need for an endpoint to receive traffic.

Assign the ILPIP

Assigning the ILPIP at the creation of the VM is very simple.  You need to logon the preview portal create the virtual machine.

1- Click New
2- Compute
3- Select the OS you want to deploy


4- Ensure you change the deployment model to Resource Manager
5- Click Create


6-Fill the info for the Basic Info (machine name administrator account and password….) and the machine size.
7- Click Settings
8- Click Public IP
9-Click Create New and give it a name

Click OK in every blade of the UI and click create.


After the machine is up and running you can navigate the portal Resource groups-> RG-PRtest-IP (that is what I name my resource group)

1- After that you select the NIC you created
2- Note your new ILPIP


Here you go. No need in the new portal to use PowerShell to assign Public IP addresses to a specific VM.  You still can if you want…but the functionality is now in the Portal.
