Dear Team,

Hope you are doing well. We need your support in few points.

We are planning to connect to Azure tenant to Cloudflare Magic transit tunnel to protect from DDoS attack.

Can you please advice once I create the tunnel at the Cloudflare side where the tunnel should be terminating at Azure end? Should I use a VPN gateway?

How will i forward the cloudflare tunnel traffic to internet facing palo alto firewall.

Please advice.

    @N-Open

    Azure VPN Gateway is used to create a VPN Site to Site Tunnel to a VNET in Azure.

    Are you looking forward to create a IPSEC S2S Tunnel from Cloudflare.

    Because, I cannot comment on the features of the third party "Cloudflare Magic transit tunnel".

    However, it seems you can build a IPSEC Tunnel: https://developers.cloudflare.com/magic-transit/reference/tunnels/

    For Azure End configuration,

    See: Create a site-to-site VPN connection in the Azure portal

    Cheers,

    Kapil
