First, I’ll describe what a VPN is and the basics of how it works. Then, I’ll walk you through the process of signing up and using one for browsing from your computer as well as your smartphone.

Azure Virtual Network Gateway serves as the cross premises gateway connecting your workloads in Azure Virtual Network to your on premises sites. It is required to connect to on premises sites through IPsec S2S VPN tunnels, or through ExpressRoute circuits. For IPsec/IKE VPN tunnels, the gateway performs the IKE handshakes, and establishes the IPsec S2S VPN tunnels between the on premises sites. For ExpressRoute, the gateways advertise the prefixes in your virtual networks via the peering circuit, and also forward packets from your ExpressRoute circuits to your VMs inside your virtual networks.
