Hello, I created a virtual machine to use GNS 3 and I try to connect with putty with the FQDN, a window appears "the host does not exist" however I followed the tuto to create the vm but no result, I want to specify that I am a beginner in azure.

    Hello djahid rerb

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform, thanks for posting your query here.

    Error "the host does not exist" indicates that the FQDN name you are trying to use and connect to VM is not configured.

    Make sure you have created fully qualified domain name for your VM correctly and then try to connect to the VM.
    Ref: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/create-fqdn

    To cross check I would also recommend to try connecting to VM using Putty via Public IP. If this connection fails, try to check if the Public IP is accessible on port 22 using this link(https://ping.eu/port-chk/). If this is closed then make sure the NSG has the port 22 allowed.

    Hope this helps.
