Linux VM on Azure for FTP/SSH Set up – Part 3

– Continued from Previous, Part 2 –

Add Azure based Linux Virtual Machine:

dlink3

Enter a name of a new User. I keep the resources basic, as I am paying for this personally, and thus it is not a money-making proposition, [although I do have Google ads, which earn me a few dollars here and there]. Bare bones processing and RAM are sufficient. If this was a business, then of course these resources would be higher, as needed:

Enter needed info, be sure to open SSH Port 22:

dlink5

 

Sure, install the VM Agent:

dlink6

So far, so good – we have provisioning:

dlink7

 

Done! A server has now been ‘Spec’d ‘, procured, purchased, and ‘plugged in’ within minutes:

dlink8

 

Now it’s time to actually connect to this Cloud-based Server.

I decided to use the awesome BitVise client from my laptop to connect to the Linux server:

First …. From Azure Dashboard for the virtual machine, get SSH info:

dlink13

 

Set up the BitVise accordingly, using the above Public host information as the address:

At first it fails. What gives?
