SNAT azure load ballancer


We are using VMSS in azure for our front-ends in our infrastructure. We found out that SNAT is not supported by Azure load balancers for internal traffic (DNS is configured to an internal ip adress).

The problem this creates is that we cannot configure “local” api connections to the environment we are in. Localhost is not an option because of the certification.

We solved this by adding the dns to all local servers hosts file with ip

Are you familiar with this issue? Do you have any prettier solutions than the one we used?

Thanks in advance!
