I've been looking at the guides for always on VPN using Azure authed with AzureAD user tunnels https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/vpn-gateway/vpn-gateway-howto-always-on-user-tunnel but I can't seem to find any reference to being able to set it all up where it will choose the closest Vnet gateway like you can with VPN clients from other vendors.

We have Azure Vnets in 4 different regions around the globe and it would be nice if people in the UK didn't have to bounce off a US Vnet to access UK resources that sit behind the VPN.

    Hi

    In this specific scenario you can use the virtual wan to route your traffic

    Best!
